Very good point. A truly unfortunate fact that there are those who would take advantage of these situations, though, fact, none the less. ...Thanks for the word to the wise!

A good idea to go with traditional charities and fact check those whom you chose.

With that said, I hope that the Haitians will get their immediate needs met as quickly as possible in this very real tragedy.

The recent disaster in Haiti is obviously making many of us consider donating to the relief effort. Before you do, though, beware! Although an appalling tragedy, there are those who would use it for their own gain, and are sending out "phishing" emails globally, requesting "donations" which actually go to line their own pockets, and may also give the criminals details of the payment card you use.

If you want to donate to disaster relief, PLEASE go directly to the appropriate websites and do NOT follow links in emails requesting donations
