Security Alert: Israel & Hamas Conflict

With the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, you may be considering donating to a charitable organization. However, it's crucial to be wary of high-pressure and time-sensitive tactics where "charitable organizations" are urging for immediate donations. Unfortunately, scammers often take advantage of people during times of crisis, and fake charities are no exception. They may use tactics like altering a legitimate charity's name slightly to trick you into donating.

To avoid being a victim of a scam, it's essential to do your research and ensure that you're donating to a legitimate charity. In the United States, law enforcement agencies have already discovered several fraudulent charities. To verify if a charitable organization has complied with the Attorney General's registration and reporting requirements, you can use this registry search tool from the State of California's Department of Justice.

In addition, be on the lookout for phishing campaigns that appear to be a legitimate charitable organization. These emails may contain a malicious link that, when clicked on, can download ransomware on your computer. Remember, never click on links from unsolicited or unexpected senders, especially if they are asking you to donate via aggressive tactics.

Always perform research on the charity you ultimately decide to donate to and ensure that the funds are going directly to the charitable organization rather than third parties. By being vigilant and cautious, you can ensure that your donation goes towards supporting the cause you care about.
