FBI warns of Haitian Earthquake relief fund fraud

http://www.ic3.gov/media/2010/100113.aspx

"The FBI today reminds Internet users who receive appeals to donate money in the aftermath of Tuesday's earthquake in Haiti to apply a critical eye and do their due diligence before responding to those requests."

As always, when natural disaster strikes, there are people who try to profit off of it.  For any place you donate to, make sure to check on them to make sure they are legit.  I like using the following resources before I donate.

Open season on tax-payers

http://www.viruslist.com/en/weblog?weblogid=208188001

As tax season approaches, users should use caution when choosing their
online tax preparer. Some security analysts are predicting a surge of
malicious tax phishing sites targeted at stealing PII (Personally
Identifiable Information) which could lead to identity theft.

It is recommended to verify the URL in the location bar, and choose a
trusted Tax Preparation site.

Thanks,
