Interested in helping with bushfire rescue help but concerned about Social Media cons?
Here is some solid direction from a local friend in Melbourne, Australia (Thank you Otto !) to avoid any potential scams:
“The state government has set up an independent reife fund organization. Via a larger domestic bank, as they are best to handle money and are audited by government to not cream up.
The government has also stated that funds are to be redirected as fast as possible to people. Insurance companies have flown in assessors from OS to help out and expedite things.
