Many people want to help with the recovery effort in Haiti by donating to a good cause, but the FBI and security experts are warning consumers about schemes.

Relief-related schemes are nothing new. We saw them with the Asian tsunami in 2004 and when hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

Now, the FBI says it’s happening all over again.

More than 400 web site addresses have registered since last week’s earthquake in Haiti.  Some of those sites may be legitimate, but many more are fraudulent.
