Memento Mori:

Electronic scams quickly proliferated. One telemarketing firm began calling senior citizens to solicit donations for “disaster relief,” with at least two bogus Web sites that offered to pass along money to the Red Cross. Meanwhile, a skin-pic outfit graciously offered this comfort: “No terrorists here! Join our porn site, turn off the TV, quit watching the crap happening in the states, and join our free site!” In one of the more bizarre incidents, the Fox News cable channel ran a ticker-tape phone number for "National Mental Health Assistance;" when dialed, callers were connected to the Hollywood headquarters of the Church of Scientology.
