DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - With so many good people offering help for the victims of the mass killings in west Texas , police are warning people to beware of scammers. 

Scammers have already been hard at work setting up fake crowdfunding campaigns.  

The Better Business  Bureau is warning people to make sure you're dealing with a real campaign site. The BBB recommends you reach out to organizers, ask them to verify the account and their relationship to the victims.

GoFundMe, one of the most popular fundraising platforms, already has safeguards in place to make sure you're not being ripped off. It verifies the identities of campaign organizers and beneficiaries and  verifies all banking information.
