About an hour ago, Alaska released this sad press release:

MEDIA INFORMATION CENTER
Direct all media inquiries to 206/870-0406


RELEASED AT 1:30 P.M. February 2, 2000

ALASKA ALERTS PUBLIC TO
FRAUDULENT SOLICITATION FOR FAMILY MEMBERS

SEATTLE -- It is with great regret that Alaska Airlines must alert Internet users that a fraudulent Web site has been created on the World Wide Web soliciting donations for the families of the passengers and crew of Alaska Airlines Flight 261. The site is not sanctioned in any way by Alaska Airlines. Further, the fraudulent site may also cause further damage by the spreading of a computer virus to those who visit the site.

The only official site for information about Flight 261 and benevolent fund raising efforts for the passengers and crew is www.alaskaair.com. Alaska Airlines has mobilized its own specially trained team of employees to support and care for the family of the passengers and crew on Flight 261. The airline will continue to help loved ones and families through this difficult time.
