Nothing new in that horrible article, just a new method of broadcasting it. Similar scams were instigated in the years BC. It's part of the human condition.

There have been other similar cases in the past - notably after the 9/11 disaster. I knew of four similar cases then - all of them from people purporting to be lawyers with access to funds left by people killed in the twin towers.

It's simply another example of the lengths to which criminal minds will go, and should come as no surprise.

I just ain't surprised anymore by the depths some people will sink to for money.

These lowlife could crawl under a snakes belly with a top hat on!

agree with F.E."s comments

and welcome to the real world folks, harsh and horrid as it is

sadly someone will always exploit a tragedy( and dont I know it)

even monies raised for the relief fund I am now questioning as to where it is going;

all sad....very sad::(((

Nice to see you say "hanged" and not "hung".

My sentiments entirely.

Pidder - Yes, it's not often people get this right.
