FRAUDSTERS ARE lurking everywhere on the internet. Here’s how to ensure safe and secure donations.

> Confirm official charitable status by searching the Canada Revenue Agency’s List of Charities. > Use a secure payment method such as a credit card or PayPal, and ensure the website’s address bar has the padlock icon and the address begins with https (the “s” stands for secure).

> Ignore requests to donate via gift cards or money order.

> Read the platform’s privacy policy so you know how personal informatio­n will be used. > Do not click on links from unsolicite­d emails asking for donations.
