When it comes to crowdfunding sites, it’s best to donate to someone you know personally. If a page claims to collect for a charity, try donating directly to the charity’s website instead.

When sites claim to donate 100% of proceeds, proceed with caution. In most cases, there are administrative fees that need to be handled.

If you spot a scam site, you can report it here.
