http://bitcoinsforcharity.org/
http://[scam].org/

edit: I see scam was put in automatically. It is the same as the other site, only with to instead of for.

Are both of those legit ?

There are accusations here (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=137646.0) that http://[scam].org/ is not legit.

For instance, the adresses here are different:

WikiLeaks

WikiLeaks brings truth to the world by publishing fact-based stories without fear or favour. You can help support our independent media by donating financially. Our organisation exists because of the work of many volunteers who have contributed thousands of hours to building WikiLeaks from the ground up. You choose how much you can donate; we don't recommend any particular amount. Just do what you think is right.
Bitcoins anonymously donated to this organization: 3651.13607932 BTC (http://blockexplorer.com/address/1HB5XMLmzFVj8ALj6mfBsbifRoD4miY36v)

[scam] seems to have whoisprotection as well.

Thoughts ?

OK, since it's already being substituded for [scam], we know it's a scam... Any way to get the site shut down ?

Promoting scam on youtube as well:

If you want to donate your Bitcoins there is a website to do so, [scam] . org I just donated 30 Bitcoins, Around 500$!!

He even created/copied a video and uploaded it to his chan to promote the scam. What a slimeball.

The first is legit, while the second is an utter scam. In case you missed it, Southerncomfort, furrycoat, and siesatsu were the accounts used by the scammer to perpetrate the scam. They're still occasionally back, using Youtube videos with the link in place etc. Please report such posts.
