Attorney General Roy Cooper tours Fayetteville damage, warns of fraud
By Amanda Dolasinski
The state attorney general is warning people to be on the lookout for fake charities before giving money to assist people who have been displaced by Hurricane Matthew.
Roy Cooper was in Fayetteville on Thursday to survey damage caused by last weekend’s storm, as well as to address price gouging, fraud and fake charity scams.
“Please consider helping victims if you can, but make sure your donation goes where it will do the most good,” Cooper said. “Research charities before you give, and report charity scams to my office.”
