BBB Warning

BBBIn the wake of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting, the Better Business Bureau is warning people who want to donate money to help those impacted.
After a major disaster or tragedy, the BBB sees an increase in fraudulent charities soliciting donations.
“This is a worthy cause to give to,” BBB CEO Kathleen Calligan said. “But, before you click, do your homework.”
The BBB said you should be wary of charities who solicit donations door –to- door. Also, be careful of charities that pop-up and do not have a track record of charitable giving that you can verify.
A GoFundMe set up by Equality Florida raised more than $4.4 million in the first three days.
A separate GoFundMe set up by The Center of Orlando has raised more than $300,000 for the victims.
