October Breast Cancer Awareness Month scams

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KBSI) – October marks breast cancer awareness month and scammers are still looking to take advantage during this time.  

“So this week we’re going to talk about breast cancer awareness month and buying a pink product. A lot of people want to do this in October with the pink stuff but you want to make sure that your money is going to organizations that they say that they’re going to or that it’s donating anything at all. And so you want to check those out before you purchase anything so that way you can make sure that your money is going to somewhere that you wanted to another thing is to look for if the information is not on the package it can typically be found on the website so you may have to dig a little deeper and if it’s not on the website or the package but a product does claim to donate to one organization it may be a good idea to reach out to that organization to see if this is actually legitimate,” said Whitney Quick, regional director of the Better Business Bureau in Cape Girardeau.
