Helping Victims of the Flooding in Colorado — Make Sure Your Donations Count

It’s heartbreaking to see people lose their lives, homes, businesses, pets and livestock to ravaging floodwaters. But it’s despicable when scammers exploit such tragedies to tug at your heartstrings and appeal to your sense of generosity.

That’s why the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, urges you to be cautious of potential charity scams in connection with the ongoing flooding in Colorado.

Vexing Texts

Who doesn’t like to get something for free? That’s what scammers are hoping when they send out messages like this:

You've been selected for a free $1000 giftcard!

Enter the code 'FREE' at yourfavestore.com.shop.biz to get it now.

Only 112 left! Text OUT to stop.

But if you do as the text says, you’ll end up at a website that requires you to give up your personal information to claim your “free” gift. Once you’ve shared your information, the site pushes you to sign up for more than a dozen risky trial offers (which aren’t free) to qualify for the supposedly free gift card they promised you.
