adoption scam in the news

http://www.newsok.com/article/3573370

I debated on whether to post this because I don't want to add any fear to the adoption process but it's always good to be aware of possible scams.  Anyway this is the craziest story with so many victims, it's really a sad situation.

Re: adoption scam in the news

  • I think it's great to share. It's important that everyone remain vigilant in the adoption world.  Adoption is an emotional rollercoaster w/o scams... and it become scary with scams.

    FWIW-  we corresponded with a "consultant" who is being investigated for scamming families.  Luckily our relationship never materialized but due to emails sent back and forth, I was called to give a statement.  Here's the story: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/03/30/victims-adoption-web-site-is-a-scam/
