“Baby Has a Malignant Tumor” Facebook Sick Child Scam

Outline:
Post being shared on Facebook claims that a baby depicted in the post’s image has a “malignant tumor in the skull” and Facebook has decided to help by donating $2 for every like, $5 for every comment, and $9 for every share.



Brief Analysis:
The post is a callous and disgusting scam designed to promote a particular Facebook Page and quickly gather large numbers of likes.

Facebook will certainly not donate money based on how many times people like, comment, or share.

The picture  of the child was stolen from a Portuguese language website that discusses support options for the child’s family.

Participating will do nothing whatsoever to help the child. Liking, sharing and commenting only helps the vile scammer who created the fake charity post.

Unfortunately, sick child scams like this one continue to be very common on Facebook. Please do not help the disgraceful people who use these scam tactics by liking, sharing, and commenting on their bogus posts.





Example:
This little baby has a malignant tumor in the skull
Facebook has decided to help by giving
1 Like = 2 dollars . 1 Comment = 5 dolllars . 1 Share = 9 dollars
