NBCRightNow.com - With relief efforts underway for the Carlton Complex Fire, the Better Business Bureau, Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Secretary of State Kim Wyman want people to be on the lookout for bogus charities and scammers trying to make money off these fire disasters.

Officials say con artists can pose as agents for official-sounding charities and target well-intentioned donors looking to help the victims of the fires.

Experts say beware of demanding solicitors, use only qualified charities and only write checks to the charity itself not the fundraiser.
