Thomasville, Georgia-- Red Cross officials are warning you about bogus e-mails asking for donations for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The messages replicate the Red Cross logo and several of its security symbols. The Red Cross director in Thomasville says the organization only solicits through e-mail when a donor has given permission. "If you have a link it should automatically go to Red Cross dot org. Or, if you'd just rather go to our homepage, it's www.redcross.org," says Melinda Friddell.

Impersonating a Red Cross worker is a felony. Violators could be prosecuted in federal court.
