Careful Who You Donate To

Posted by wlpo on November 23, 2013

CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois’ Attorney General says she’s opening an investigation into a potential fundraising scam tied to tornado relief efforts.

Lisa Madigan’s office says it received a complaint regarding an unregistered, out-of-state entity that said it was raising funds for victims of last weekend’s storms in Washington. Illinois law requires fundraisers and charities to register each year with the attorney general’s office.

Madigan is urging you to carefully research organizations heading up recovery efforts which are seeking donations.
