FBI Warning About False Solicitation

In the wake of devastating natural disasters, many individuals, businesses, and organizations are moved to give back to their community. Unfortunately, it is not at all unusual for predatory scams and frauds to pop up during these times to take advantage of people’s good will.

The FBI Honolulu Division has recently released a alert to warn the public about the potential for fraud after Super Typhoon Yutu, which can come in a variety of forms, including emails, websites, door-to-door collections, phone calls, and more. One way you can be sure to get your resources to the people who need it most is to donate directly to the Ayuda Foundation.
