Today is “Giving Tuesday” and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has issued some tips to be sure you’re giving to a legitimate charity on this special day. Schneiderman recommends to first check to insure the organization is registered with the state and make sure the charity has authorized the organization to collect money on their behalf so you know where your donation will be going. If you’re called by a charity don’t succumb to pressure and ask the caller to put your number on a do not call list. Finally never disclose personal information like social security or bank account numbers.
