Tips to stay safe

  • Never send money to an individual you haven't yet met.
  • Use caution when donating to organizations that aren't well-documented, or if there's any reason whatsoever to doubt their legitimacy.
  • Don't participate in unusual financial exchanges involving bank account transfers or money orders. When in doubt, research and/or ask for referrals. Legitimate organizations will be happy to provide information.
  • Never open an unsolicited video resume.​ Occasionally we hear from someone who's received a 'Video Resume' email link that took them to a malware-bearing webpage. These resumes do not come from our site, have no relation to actual Idealist users, and should be treated as spam and deleted immediately.
