LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — During Giving Tuesday, it's important to remember there are always scammers looking to take advantage of people's generosity.

Make sure you vet charities you're considering giving money to, and if you're donating online, make sure to double-check the website's address.

Scammers can set up a bogus site that's a couple of letters off, and the Better Business Bureau warned people to not cave in to every phone call asking for charity.

The BBB also says legitimate charities won't pressure people to give them money immediately when not comfortable.
