When tragedy strikes, scams aren't far behind. It seems difficult to believe that some people will take advantage of a tragedy like the one in the Twin Cities last week. But, Glen Loyd with Wisconsin Consumer Protection says don't be surprised, if you're contacted on behalf of the victims of the Minnesota bridge collapse. Those solicitations can come in the form of phone calls or emails asking you to send cash or even your credit card information. If you really want to help the victims in the Twin Cities, Loyd suggests contacting the local office of groups like the Red Cross or Salvation Army, to find out what's needed, and where your dollars can do the most good.
