Watch For Fake Boston Marathon Donation Sites -Scam Alert
You want to talk about the lowest of the lowest of the low? They are scammers - people who especially use a tragedy to attempt to profit off it. I can't BELIEVE that I even have to spread the word about this, but as a public service....
According to CNNmoney.com, they're out there. They are Boston Marathon charity websites. Now don't get wrong - I'm sure there are legitimate ones out there. That's what makes this even more sad, because now this is going to make your more hesitant to trust any of them. However, I want to warn you.
If you see bostonmarathondonations.com,, bostonmarathonvictimfund.com , or bostonmarathonattack.com, they are bogus. Actually, I tried all of them and they don't lead anywhere. In fact if you got the first one, this is what you get. I guess this domain name is now available again, but I'm sure they will check who's applying.
What kind of thinking, breathing person starts dreaming up scams like these - and moments after a tragedy, no less?
I've gotta go calm down, folks. Sorry.
