Wildfire Scams

As with any disaster in the past, we expect some scams related to the California wildfires. So far, we are happy to report that we see almost no activity. But if you come across something, please let us know!

Basic tips:

  • only donate to charities you know.
  • do not respond to donation requests that you may receive via e-mail.
  • If in doubt, make your donation via mail or phone using a well published phone number.
  • The IRS operates a registry of charities apps.irs.gov/portal/site/pub78

Our best wishes are with the victims of the fire.

 

I will be teaching next: Defending Web Applications Security Essentials - SANS Cyber Defense Initiative 2020
