Experts warn of bogus charities in wake of bombings

BOSTON (WFSB) -

Experts are warning the public to beware of bogus charities trying to profit from the Boston Marathon bombings.

Just hours after the bombings, one scammer set up a Twitter account claiming to be associated with the Boston Marathon organization and promised to donate $1 for every retweet.

Experts suggest making sure the organization is registered with a state agency before donating money.
