N.J. Consumer Affairs warns against fraudulent charities seeking donations for Japanese victims

N.J. Consumer Affairs warns against fraudulent charities seeking donations for Japanese victims

Issues information in four foreign languages

The state Division of Consumer Affairs is issuing posters and flyers in Japanese and other Asian languages, with the important message “Before you Donate to Help Those Affected by the Disaster in Japan: Beware of Fraudulent Charities.”

“New Jersey citizens of every ethnic background are watching the immense suffering in Japan, and they are moved to help in any way possible,” Acting Consumer Affairs Director Thomas R. Calcagni said. “At times like these, many legitimate charities begin seeking donations for relief efforts. Unfortunately, disasters also attract con artists who set up fraudulent charities that do nothing but fleece donors out of their money.”
