Be Careful of the Scam Artists

Amid Newtown tragedy, scam artists creep in

----------------------------------------------------

I already noticed this because I at some point stumbled on some blog from someone who claimed to be close to one of the victim's families and who was raising money for said family. I didn't think too much about it (would not give money without more confirmation), BUT, then this person asked whoever else to comment who was also asking for money in regards to this tragedy.

I just cringed!! I knew the scammers would love some free publicity.

So, be careful. Don't believe everything you see or read. There are tons of scum out there trying to profit from this tragedy - there always is.

    This is just terrible. I can't believe people can be so opportunistic.

    It's unfortunate, but necessary to verify and double verify -- esp. when emotions are running high.

    This is very sad. Some people would take advantage of a difficult situation in order to get other people's money.
