BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Not everyone is keeping compassion in mind post-Sandy. The IRS released a statement warning of possible scam artists post Sandy.

In the letter it warns people to watch who they donate to and to do homework on which charities you give your money to.

The IRS also advises those donating to not give out your personal information like your Social Security number or credit and bank account number.

Also, if you log IRS.gov you can check out legitimate organizations to make your donation.
