A Bogus E-mail Solicitation for the Sago Mine Survivor
We should all know by now. With every disaster comes a scam. So we shouldn't be surprised about this latest consumer alert involving the Sago Mine disaster in West Virginia.
Federal and state law enforcement officials are warning about a fake e-mail purporting to seek donations for the single survivor, Randal McCloy Jr. The e-mail claims to be from Dr. Lawrence Roberts, who is one of the main physicians in charge of McCloy. The e-mail describes McCloy's condition and seeks donations for his treatment.
This e-mail is a hoax, law enforcement officials say. And there will probably be others. So if you have received this e-mail, or similar ones, beware--and consider filing a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
