Hurricane Katrina Relief - scam

Thank you for contributing to the Hurricane Katrina Relief operation.
To reduce donor wait times caused by high volume, the American Red
Cross has partnered with Microsoft and MSN to help handle donation
processing. Victims of Hurricane Katrina are attempting to recover
from the massive storm. American Red Cross volunteers have been
deployed to the hardest hit areas of Katrina’s destruction, supplying
hundreds of thousands victims left homeless with critical necessities.

By making a financial gift to the Hurricane Katrina Relief operation,
the Red Cross can provide shelter, food, counseling and other
assistance to those in need.
