AG Brnovich Warns of Hurricane Charity Scams

PHOENIX - Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich today is warning Arizonans to watch out for hurricane charity scams as they make donations to help those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Hurricane Matthew," said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. "It's important to help any way we can but remember - when a hurricane moves out, scam artists move in and try to take advantage of a person’s generosity. One of the best ways to protect yourself is to do your homework before making a donation."
