ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says people should take basic precautions before donating to crowdfunding sites.

Web sites that allow users to post fundraising solicitations and receive donations are becoming increasingly popular.

Schneiderman says that while the sites can achieve worthy goals, donors should make sure they are giving to reputable websites with a known track record. Donors also should know what the crowdfunding website requires from a campaign before it is posted.

Schneiderman warns that in most cases, platforms will not reimburse you if a campaign fails to deliver what it promised.
