Newtown Tragedy – Possible Fake Charity Sites

The ISC notes several new related domains have been registered and also warns that some may be potentially fake.  My own thoughts and prayers continue for all who were impacted.

QUOTE: Following the tragic events in Newtown Connecticut last week several new domain names related to those events have been registered.    I have little doubt that many of these site are owned by charitable and caring individuals or organizations who want to assist families in their time of need.   Other sites may belong to political organizations who will attempt to further their side of an argument as a result of this tragedy.    Still other sites will undoubtedly belong to scammers who will capitalize on peoples desire to help by establishing fake charities.    I spent a few hours going through many of the newly registered domains.   So far most of the sites are still under construction with very little to look at.    I expect that will change over the next few days.
