Denver – Colorado Attorney General Cynthia H. Coffman is urging consumers to do their homework before responding to a solicitation for money to help victims of the shooting in Orlando, Florida. Sadly, many fraudsters take advantage of tragedy to line their own pockets through donation scams.
“Coloradans always are extremely generous in response to those in need. Be charitable, but be smart,” said Attorney General Coffman. “If you want to help, ensure that the person collecting your money is really giving it to victims or to organizations providing victim and community support.”
