[liberationtech] Do any of you know of apps for detecting any fake requests for assistance in the aftermath of disasters?

Hey All,

Would any of you happen to know of any apps to detect fake requests for
assistance in the wake of disasters?

It is not uncommon after disasters for imposters to appeal for help, take
the money, and run. In fact, swindlers will even create organizations for
this purpose.

Has any technology been invented to guard against this purpose? In any
case, are there any best practices for detecting and defending against this
type of behavior?
