OT scam: Tsunami relief

Editing for authors: because every writer needs a good editor.


Not about writing, but I wanted to post this warning.

In my junk email box, I've started receiving a scam email that uses the tsunami tragedy to try for my credit card info.

The email is typical of the "Nigerian Bank" scam -- poorly written, totally unbelievable. But at least the bank scam doesn't piggyback on the terrible tragedy. This one does.

Hopefully there's a special spot in hell for such people.


I'm with you katdad. On the news last night, there was a warning about these scams coming down the pipe. People who perpetrate such things are vile in the extreme.

So be careful, folks. I would advise everyone to only donate to reputable charities like the Red Cross, etc.
