As with any tragic and catastrophic even such as the earthquake/tsunami which recently took its toll on Japan, Arizona residents who care are surely eager to lend a helping hand in anyway they can to the people in Japan who need it right now. However; there are people in the world who heartlessly take advantage of these types of situations, and your Phoenix area mover here wants to extend a word of advice for anybody wanting to help provide aid to the people in Japan.
A charitable donation does the victims in Japan no good if you are fooled into “donating” to a scam artist, of which there are many in this world. To be sure that your donations are truly going toward helping disaster victims in Japan, your mover in Phoenix suggests limiting your donations to reputable charity establishments only. Furthermore; don’t ignore your suspicions if you are asked for a credit card number or checking information over the phone, it is better to be safe than to be sorry. You are more than welcome to cross-reference charitable establishments with the Secretary of the State’s Officer in Arizona if you have a bad feeling about any particular individuals you think may be trying to scam you.
