Scammers in the News

Nope, it’s not Heidi Diaz this time! Get this:

Couple Sorry For Sextuplet Hoax

Last spring, this Missouri couple faked the pregnancy and birth of sextuplets, so they could collect all the loot kind people were willing to give them. They said they did it for ‘financial reasons.’ According to the story:

Those who had heard the Eversons' sad story of tight finances set up a Web site to solicit contributions - including a van, washer and dryer, cash and gift certificates. A real estate agent was even working to find the family new housing.
It also says:
"I have never dealt with anything like this," said Police Chief Aaron Ambrose. "The level of fraud like this involving people, I have not."
Apparently he hasn’t encountered Heidi Diaz.
