With the recent disasters in Maui and Southern California, please be alert for disaster scams which always occur after natural disasters. If you want to help provide relief to affected areas make sure that the charity you are donating to is a legitimate charity such as the Red Cross or other nationally known organizations.
You can search the list of registered charities on the Attorney General’s website at https://rct.doj.ca.gov/Verification/Web/Search.aspx?facility=Y .
All non-profit charities are required to register in California.
