Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost is urging Ohioans to be generous with their pocketbook…and with their time…in checking out those seeking donations during the holiday season.

On this ‘Giving Tuesday’, Yost has some safety tips…they include…

-Do not assume that charity recommendations on social media sites are all legitimate. Make sure to research the charity.

-Be cautious of “look-alike” websites and charities with names that sound similar to well-known organizations.

-Make sure the donation website is secure.

-Determine what percentage of the donation will go to the charity and whether there will be any fees for donating.
