of any emails purporting to relate to lost children (or adults) in areas affected by the recent tsunami disaster. There are suddenly hundreds of hoax messages in circulation, and many of them contain viruses - particularly those which include attachments described as images from the disaster areas. Please don't distribute such mail, or attempt to publish details on the forum.

No bona-fide aid agency would distribute or originate such mail under any circumstances.

Yes and plenty of bogus charity workers as well. "scum" thanks for the warning FE,always on the ball.

Thanks FE. Sad world we live in. I heard that some doctors who have gone out to try and help have not been allowed due to the fear of paedophiles being bogus doctors.

these people who do this are the lowest of the low and dont deserve the right to have acces to the net thanks for the warning

scums of the lowest order. where do these poeple come from? another planet? it angers me that even a situation as sad as this one is used by these psychotics for exploitation.

Totally agree

These people are lower than amoebas

Thank you for the warning, why are there so many sick people in this world ? Nature has proven time and again that it can inflict misery on thousands, why do some people want to add to that misery. The reason is beyond me.

I will just bump it up.
