Should I be worried if I don’t recognize the recipient’s name on the payment summary page?

The name you see on the payment summary screen is the owner of the payment account linked to the fundraiser.

You should not necessarily be concerned just because this name doesn't match the beneficiary of the fundraiser. Many fundraisers will use the payment account of a close friend or family member, which may be why you do not recognize the name.

You can always contact the fundraiser organizer for more information by using the 'Contact the Organizer' button at the front page of their fundraising page. If you have suspicions that a fundraiser may be fraudulent, please report this to us right away using the 'Submit a request' option below and include a link to the fundraiser.

We recommended that you only donate to the fundraisers that you are familiar with and feel confident are legitimate.
