The Salvation Army says there are currently bogus e-mails going around asking for donations to the Salvation Army's relief efforts in Japan. The e-mail - which claims to be from the Salvation Army - urges people to send a donation to an email address. That e-mail address is not a valid Salvation Army address.
If you get one of these e-mails, you can report it to your local Better Business Bureau.
