Public News Service reports that scam artists are out in full force during the holiday season.
American Cancer Society Estate and Assets Services Director Jo Rosen says be sure to check out an unfamiliar charity before donating. Reputable charities are more than happy to give potential donors all of the information they need. Also, organizations such as Charity Navigator and the Better Business Bureau post information—including the percentage of donation dollars that is actually spent on direct services.
