The Better Business Bureau warns of charity scams using the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria as a front. Sunday, fans at a soccer match for the Turkish Besiktas team threw thousands of toys on the pitch.

These toys were for young earthquake survivors. The BBB warns that amazing gestures like these can be usurped by criminals looking to steal money from donors and the survivors who desperately need help.  The agency suggests paying with a credit card, checking web addresses carefully as some scammers send links that are almost identical to those of reputable charities, and researching crowdfunding campaigns.
