As aid continues to come into Haiti, more organizations here are relying on you for support.

But now a growing number of folks that claim to use your money to help victims are keeping it for themselves.

The Better Business Bureau says there haven't been reports of anyone being victimized here just yet, but reports are coming in from across the country.

Jim Stalls with the BBB says it's very important to research the organization before you donate. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
