Salvation Army Tsunami Spam

financial planning

Guess this was bound to happen. As a result of that earthquake in Japan it seems like somebody is trying to get people to donate money for what seems to be a charitable cause. In this case, the e-mail advertises itself as from the Salvation Army.

Just looking at the sender e-mail makes me think it is a phoney. So far any of you that are even considering handing out your hard earned dollar to a sketchy message like this you should look the other way I say. Here is a copy of the e-mail:
