Warning About Fake Charities

Rip-off artists are sending "phishing" e-mails pretending to be soliticing for the Red Cross which have embedded in them which will take you to a fake Red Cross website.

Wisconsin Consumer Protection administrator Janey Jenkins says, "Don't respond to any e-mail soliciting donations from the Red Cross or other organizations."

Organizations do accept contributions on the web, but only by a web user who goes to their sites... not by soliciting.
