Devastating floodwaters are prompting people across the country to send money to Colorado flood victims but you need to make sure your donation goes where it’s supposed to.
Tips from the Federal Trade Commission include donate to charities you know and be alert for groups springing up in connection with current events.
Check out the charity with the Better Business Bureau, never send cash and don't share personal or financial information unless you're sure the group is reputable.
