I don't know what your source is, but I did hear something similar on the radio while driving yesterday. What I got from it was merely a cautionary
message, warning people to be careful of scam artists. They mentioned that some websites can have names very similar to the American Red Cross, for
example, and just reminded people to "be careful".
It's really unfortunate that these types of warnings need to be issued, but the sad truth is there are some people who take advantage of a crisis.
9/11 and the tsunami were two high-profile examples. And just this week, there was a guy on a downtown Boston street holding a can that had "Donate
to Katrina Victims" written on it. Now he may have been on the up and up, but I sorta doubt it.
