Hurricane Harvey Charity Scam

Cyber scammers are using the Hurricane Harvey disaster to trick people to click on links on Facebook, Twitter and phishing emails.

Some Examples to watch out for:

  • Facebook pages dedicated to victim relief that contain links to scam websites.
  • Tweets are going out with links to charitable websites soliciting donations, but in reality include links to scam sites or links that lead to a malware infection.
  • Phishing emails dropping in a user’s inbox asking for donations to #HurricaneHarvey Relief Fund.

If you want to make a donation, go to the website of the charity of your choice and make a donation. Type the address in your browser or use a bookmark. Do not click on any links in emails or text you might get. Be cautious with whatever you see in the coming weeks about Hurricane Harvey disaster relief.

THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.
