Spammers run donation scam

Author: JT Smith

Network World Fusion: "The scam is taking the form of spam, or
unsolicited bulk e-mail, and postings in online
forums, asking for donations either in the name
of the victims or specifically for the American
Red Cross. Margie Arbon, manager of market
and business development for Mail-Abuse
Prevention Systems, an organization that fights
spam, says it started seeing the fraudulent
e-mail messages Wednesday, the day after the
terrorist attacks, but that the number of them has
been picking up over the day Thursday."
