Red Cross Scam

Posted: Updated:

Residents should be on alert, as the Minnkota Chapter of the American Red Cross in Fargo has been notified that a person representing themselves as a Red Cross worker has contacted homes in the region requesting credit card donations for the relief efforts in Moore, Oklahoma.

According to KFGO, Spokesman Brian Shawn says although the local Red Cross is accepting donations for the Oklahoma disaster, they are not making calls to request financial assistance.

People can donate by visiting www.redcross.org, calling 1-800-Red Cross or texting the word "redcross" to 90999 to make a $10 donation. The donations help provide food, shelter and emotional support to the disaster victims.
