Toys for Tots Scam

It seems that the scammer is at it once again, this time soliciting donations to Toys for Tots. This scam artist is now telling folks that in lieu of a toy, Eminem's people can shop for them. All they have to do is provide their credit card information.

Remember, don't surrender your personal information to anyone. If you're shopping or donating to charity online, look for the sign of a secure website - an 's' following 'http' in the URL. Also, avoid giving out personal and/or financial information over the phone and clicking on links in unsolicited email messages.
