Japan Charity Scam

Mar 21st, 2011 | By

In the light of the horrific earthquake and tsunami that has hit the eastern part of the island of Honshu, you might have received e-mails requesting donations to a fund to help the inhabitants. Whilst a number of charities are actively engaged in helping, be wary of any e-mails you get. If you know the source and trust it, fine. If it comes from someone or some organisation that uses a hotmail or gmail address, be suspicious. If an organisation is named, google them and go to the official website. Donate via that method instead.
