Tsunami “charity” e-mail

by on Mar.15, 2011, under E-Mail hosting, Operations

I’ve just had an e-mail arrive in my SPAM folder that looks extremely dangerous.

It purports to be from the British Red Cross appealing for Japan, but

  • The Red Cross were on the radio yesterday explaining that their priority is currently the Libyan refugee crisis.
  • The email originated in China.
  • The payment method was Moneybookers (an alarm bell all by itself)
  • The payee was a personal account
  • The Payee should have been the Red CrossThe British Red Cross
  • No off-line donation methods listed, such as bank transfers, telephone with credit card, or local collections.

We are tagging these as SPAM, but do watch out
