I just received an email puporting to be from the Republican National Committee requesting donations to the Red Cross. The email has graphics straight from the Red Cross.
I thought it was weird since I’m not registered with any political party and I already gave to the Red Cross for Katrina relief. Then I looked at the links, which led to a web server in Asia, all set up to look just like the American Red Cross donation page. Apparently nothing is beneath internet thieves.
This blog has more info on other Katrina phishing scams.
Please make sure you go to the real Red Cross page if you donate.
