Cybercriminals may make use of the latest earthquake event that rocked Haiti

Small island of Haiti was devastated after it experience a major earthquake recently. Thousands of people have been killed and many left homeless. Our prayers are with the people of Haiti for faster recovery out of it.

I would like to bring here the point that cybercriminals always make use of the latest happening news to take advantage of the attention it is getting.

The same cyber crime gangs who are behind the online frauds like email lotteries, corrupt bank employees, ‘419’ scam may take advantage of this latest event of earthquake and start sending millions of spam emails appealing for donation for the earthquake victims.

We are closely monitoring the recent spam activities for such kind of fraud. I also here by appeal people not to donate online using the link received in email making appeal for donation. To do online donations for the Haiti Earthquake victims you can visit Red Cross website directly by clicking below link to official Red Cross website.

Quick Heal Teams thoughts and support are with people of Haiti.
