SPRINGFIELD -- Lisa Madigan warns people to watch for scams when donating to disaster relief funds for the Oklahoma tornado. The Attorney General says con-artists tend to pop up anytime something major happens.

She says people need to be careful and take some tips to stay safe. Check to see you're donating to a legitimate organization. If you're not sure, call the Better Business Bureau or check with Madigan's office.
