Our hearts go out to the people of Boston and all those affected by today’s horrific events at the Boston Marathon.

Unfortunately, tragedies like this are exactly when bad actors emerge to play on people’s emotions, using domain names and social media to exploit the good intentions of those who want to express their sympathy. Twitter has already suspended a fake account, @_BostonMarathon, which claimed that it would donate $1 to victims for retweets.

As you look for news or ways to donate time or money, use the utmost caution to ensure you are using properly vetted, legitimate sites.
