Scammers Stealing Money Intended for Hurricane Victims

Heads-up! Bad guys are exploiting the Hurricane Harvey disaster. They are setting up fake Facebook pages, tweeting links to fake charity websites, and sending out phishing emails asking for donations to #HurricaneHarvey – relief funds they plan to keep for themselves. Don’t fall for any scams. If you want to make a donation, go to the website of the charity of your choice and make a donation. Type the address in your browser or use a bookmark. Do not click on any links in emails or texts you might get about this event.
Whatever you see in the coming weeks about Hurricane Harvey disaster relief, THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK.

Please help get this information out to others by sharing on social media.

Thanks to Cherry Creek Mortgage Company IT Dept. for this alert. I am a senior loan officer at Cherry Creek Mortgage.
