If you want to donate to the folks in Oklahoma you better make your donations aren't going a scam artist.
Mike Wolfe, the Director of MECCA 9-1-1, said that anytime a tragedy like that happens scam artists are quick to follow along. He warned that if you want to donate cash you need to do your research.
Wolfe said it's not a bad idea to call the organization you want contribute to.
"You can text to a number and donate $10," he said. "Make sure to do some research and call your local Red Cross office. Make sure that's the promotion they're asking you to do."

Wolfe added that if you want to help with the clean up efforts it's a good idea to connect with a local group who's going to Oklahoma. That way you don't get hurt.
