Red Cross Warns of Japan Aid Scams
JEFFERSON CITY - Mid-Missouri Red Cross officials said Thursday there are scams in the form of texts and emails making their way around and posing as the American Red Cross and the British Red Cross asking for donations to aid Japan.
These frauds are asking for money donations through money transfers via Western Union and asking people to buy products such as first aid kits to be shipped over seas.
The Red Cross CEO of the Capital Area Chapter in Jefferson City, Beth Bauer, said only the website (Redcross.org) is a safe place to make donations.
