TUCSON - Attorney General Tom Horne warned Arizonans on Wednesday to be wary of potential scams related to Hurricane Sandy relief.
"Generosity runs deep among Americans," Horne said, "and when a crisis hits, even one that's more than 2000 miles away, Arizonans have a great tradition of responding."
Horne suggests Arizonans should be cautious when giving to a relief agency.
"Make sure they are giving to an established and responsible organization," Horne said.
Suggestions for charitable giving were included in a press release from the Attorney General's office.
Donating to known and legitimate charities, like the Red Cross, is suggested. Internet scams may emerge on social media and through unsolicited emails and calls.
