Beware of Online Scams “Help for Haiti”

The urge to help and to give money is powerful following a devastating event like Haiti’s earthquake, and one of the easiest ways to do it is online. “It’s also one of the easiest ways to get scammed if you’re not sure what you’re doing or who you’re dealing with.”

Security software company Symantec says “it typically starts seeing spam and phishing e-mails seeking money, “donations” or access to bank accounts about 24 to 48 hours after news of a major tragedy such as Haiti’s.”
