HORNE URGES CONSUMER CAUTION WHEN USING WEBSITES FOR BORDER FENCE CONTRIBUTIONS PHOENIX (Thursday, July 28, 2011) — Attorney General Tom Horne says Arizonans who wish to contribute to the construction of a border fence should only contribute to the state’s official website designated for that purpose. That website is: http://www.buildtheborderfence.com.
“In the past few days, some consumers may have become confused by a website with a similar Internet address as Arizona’s official border fence construction site,” Horne said. “That website made changes when the operator was alerted to the possible confusion, but consumers should always exercise caution when donating money. Make sure the entity you’re giving the donation to is legitimate and will use the funds for the purpose intended. In the case of the border fence construction, the official website has the Arizona State Seal and the az.gov website banner. Consumers should be wary of any other website that claims to support funding for the border fence.”
