Online Charities: which are real, and which ones are fake? Try People Search by Address
Americans have generous, giving hearts. Many citizens donate funds to online charities in order to help the poor, those with disabilities, animal and climate activists and much more. If you’re one of these generous people, congratulations! It’s a great feeling to give what you can afford for a specific cause, e.g. to someone who is in need or for the purpose of research illnesses in the hope of finding a cure. It’s also wonderful to help those who protect animals and their rights as well.
If you donate to charities on a regular basis, you should know something important. Not all the charities online are real. In fact, there are criminals and con-artists who take advantage of people’s generosity and kindness. They post fake charities, get you involved so that you want to make a difference, and they line their pockets and wallets with the checks you send them – and your money never reaches the needy. So, while you may think you’re helping someone who is in need, you may be helping someone who is greedy.
Here are some really good tips for avoiding offering donations to fake charity organizations.
• Conduct your preliminary research on a charity organization. You are so full of empathy for needy people, but sometimes you might get emotional about a sad story or a specific problem and you take your checkbook out of your wallet and start issuing it before you think whether this is the right thing to do. So, find out what you can about a charity organization before you send them your donation.
• See if you can contact someone who has been helped by the charity organization in the recent past. Many charities tell you personal stories of people that they’ve been able to help through donations. If you can contact such person, find out if they were helped with and any other information that will help you realize if the charity organization at stake has a legitimate activity.
• Check to see what physical address they are giving you in order to send the money to. If you can get such address, you can find out its owner. Here’s how –
If you want to find out if the owner of the charity is a criminal, all you need is the address, and simply enter it, here (Investigations123.com’s address search box).
The search box above (provided by Investigations 123 com) will allow you to look up someone’s background through their address! Simply enter the address of the charity you wish to research online. After submitting such information, you’ll have access to the name and phone number of the person associated with such address. You’ll also receive marriage and death certificates, civil and criminal court records, national and local court records and much more. So, if this charity is a fake organization, you’ll know about it before you send them your donation.
This is a great way to make sure that your hard-earned cash is really going to help needy people to improve their life’s. Make sure that your donation isn’t going into the pockets of a criminal.
