In the wake of last week’s Boston Marathon bombing, people are rushing to donate money to victims and their families.

But, State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman reminds donors to be careful to keep from getting scammed.

Schneiderman says donations should be given to familiar organizations that have filed with the Attorney General’s Office, and donors should ask how their money will be used. He also stresses that donors use checks, and not cash, when giving.

The Attorney General also notes that unsolicited emails are not usually connected with a legitimate charity, and could be a social engineering or phishing scheme.

Several groups offer information to help select and evaluate charities, and can be found below.
