INDIANAPOLIS — When disaster strikes, most people want to help.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller issued a statement Friday, May 24, telling people to be careful when donating to help Oklahoma tornado victims.

Zoeller advised following these steps when asked for a donation:

Ÿ Ask for details of how your donation will be used.

Ÿ Watch for charities with names that sound similar to respected organizations.

Ÿ Donate with a check, and make checks out to the organization, not to a specific person.

The Attorney General’s website lists organizations that have information on charities, including the Better Business Bureau and Charity Navigator.

 People wait to cross a street in front of a Shell filling station with the electric indicator showing a liter of regular gas price, top, at 148 yen, or $1.25, per liter (554 yen, or $4.69 per gallon) in Tokyo Friday, Nov. 28, 2014. A renewed plunge in oil prices is a worrying sign of weakness in the global economy that could shake governments dependent on oil revenues. It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day. Member nations of the cartel are worried they’ll lose market share if they lower production. (AP Photo/Koji Sasahara)
