This widely circulated Facebook message, which features a photograph depicting a baby with a very large growth on the side of her head, asks users to like, comment, and share the image as a means of raising money to help the pictured baby.
The post claims that Facebook will donate $1 for every like, $3 for every comment, and $10 for every share.
However, liking, commenting, or sharing the picture will do nothing whatsoever to help this baby.
In fact, the message is just another sick baby scam. Facebook certainly will not donate money to help the child in exchange for liking, commenting, and sharing.
The unscrupulous self-serving users who create such messages do so for no other reason than to collect likes for their Facebook Pages or drive traffic to their websites. The person who created this scam message stole the baby’s photograph from another source and reused it without the permission of the baby’s parents.
Little Isabel, the baby in the photograph, was suffering from an extremely rare sarcoma tumour. The tumour was removed in April 2012. Although the removal operation was successful, the cancer had spread to the baby’s bone marrow and she required chemotherapy. Isabel is likely to face serious and ongoing health issues as a result of the cancer.
Disturbingly, this message is just one in a long line of similar scams that use stolen pictures of sick children. Please do not feed the vile ambitions of the people who create such hoaxes by liking or sharing” their messages. These people are beneath contempt and have no place on Facebook or any other social network.
Often, the unauthorized circulation of such photographs causes great distress to the child’s family. Sharing such messages will not help the pictured children in any way.
If one of these hoaxes comes your way, please do not like, share, or comment on it as that will just help to further promote the scam.

Importance NoticeAfter considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.
These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.
Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.
And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.
When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.
I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.
A Big Thank YouI would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.
I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.
Closing DateHoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.
Thank you, one and all!
