The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers that there are scammers out there trying to make a quick buck off the tragic death of Robin Williams. They prey on your emotions, and those looking to do good in the wake of the comedian and actors passing.
"You may see something like 'see his suicide note,' or something bizarre like autopsy photos. It gets people to click on these sites," said Sue McConnell with the Cleveland BBB.
It's called a "click bait" scam. They push potential victims to links of his photo, souvenirs or other phony websites.
"What you're doing is putting viruses on your computer," warned McConnell.
That can also give them access to your personal information.
Along with these scams, there are fake charities, scammers set up to try and get your money.
"They are trying to make themselves seem legitimate, possible asking for donations to help with depression," McConnell said.
Don't fall for it. Always research charities on the websites like the BBB.
