Bakersfield police are asking the community to be vigilant in researching unfamiliar organizations before donating money.
It is not uncommon for individuals to take advantage of others, even after a tragedy such as the Boston Marathon explosion, for financial gain. Be cautious when providing money to fundraising efforts for any cause.
The public is also asked to be careful when clicking on links associated with unfamiliar websites.
