There really are some scumbags in this world

A grieving mum was targeted by scammers who used her daughter’s death as a way to make money.

They then created fake social media profiles using Jessie’s picture so that they could ask her friends to donate money, without realising it would not reach the family. Friends of the family who donated have since been refunded and the police are now investigating the pages.A spokeswoman for GoGetFunding said it is common for scammers to try and take advantage of all crowdfunding platforms, adding that highly emotive incidents are often selected.
