A levelek szerint az Üdvhadsereg a Katrina hurrikán károsultjainak javára gyűjt pénzt, de valójában minden levél egy Svédországban elhelyezett szerverre irányít, ahol bankkártya információkat próbál kicsalni egy csaló webhely a gyanútlan adakozóktól. A Websense Enterprise tartalomszűrő rendszer a csaló oldalt biztonsági okokból már blokkolja.

Identified by author and management expert Peter Drucker as ˝by far the most effective organization in the United States,˝ The Salvation Army invests the charitable gifts it receives in the lives of men and women and boys and girls.
˝No one even comes close to it in respect to clarity of mission, ability to innovate, measurable results, dedication and putting money to maximum use,˝ Drucker said. (Forbes, August 11, 1997).
According to the Army´s 2004 annual report, approximately $0.83 of each dollar spent by The Salvation Army is used to fund direct services for people.
