CHARLOTTE, N.C. - If you are looking for ways to help the tornado victims, be careful not to get scammed.  State Attorney General Roy Cooper says don't respond to unsolicited emails and texts for donations or posts on social media.  Also, when donating, use a credit card when possible.  But, if you write a check, make it out to the charity only, not to the fundraiser.

An easy and safe way to donate is to text "Red Cross" to "90999" or text "SP" to "80888."
