Be alert to fake
bush re fundraising
THE state's consumer watchdog is
warning northern suburbs and Adelaide
Hills residents to be cautious of people
knocking on doors claiming to be
collecting money for those affected by
the current Sampson Flat bushfires.
South Australians should also be careful
of websites seeking donations, which may
claim to represent the CFS, or any charity
collecting for bushfire victims.
Acting commissioner for consumer
affairs Lyn Guerin said it was outstanding
to see the positive community support,
but, unfortunately, some people's goodwill
was being abused.
"When donating money to help people
affected by a crisis, please be vigilant
and thoroughly check the legitimacy
of charities when donating to help fire
victims," she said.
"Whilst many legitimate charities
exist, scammers have been known to take
advantage of the public's generosity and
kindness in the aftermath of disastrous
In South Australia, organisations
collecting money for a charitable purpose
are required to be licensed.
Donations to the SA bushfires
emergency relief fund can be made in
a number of ways and further detail is
available on the sa.gov.au website.
Alternatively, you can check online to see
if a charity is licensed.
