Charity scams on rise in name of Sandy Hook victims

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY Okla_ Connecticut's tragedy has brought out the worst in some people.

Oklahoma's Attorney General said charity scams are on the rise in the state, after officials in Connecticut received complaints about criminals setting up fake charities in the names of some of the dead children.  

If you want to help, be sure to donate to organizations with proven track records. Watch out for impersonators with similar sounding names of well-known organizations. Also, never give personal or financial information over the phone or via email to groups asking for contributions.

The AG's office says you can go to www.ct.gov and click on, "How to Help Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting Victims.''
