Horne warns of possible quake fundraising scams

Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne says people considering how to help with the earthquake relief effort in Japan should be wary of scam artists soliciting donations.

Making donations to reputable and established charities is the best way to avoid having money taken by con artists.

Other tips include being wary if a caller asks for a credit card or bank account number unless you already have given to the group and being skeptical of people who say they represent quake survivors.

To check if a charity is registered in the state, consumers can call the Arizona Secretary of State’s Office or use its website.
