For most of us the sight of a horrible tragedy triggers an "I wish I could help" reaction. This is in our nature as normal and most of us will contribute to our community at one time or another with sweat or cash from our wallet. I say "most" because there is an insidious population which only takes and never gives in times of tragedy. These vultures are persistently waiting in the wings for disaster to strike the innocent so they can collect off of your grief and good nature. Whether it was 9/11, the 2004 tsunami, hurricane Katrina, the gulf oil spill, or the horrid mass murder in Newtown, Connecticut, cold hearted charity scammers see only dollar signs in the suffering of others. It is bad enough to be ripped off online, but to have your money stolen with the belief you are helping someone is the ultimate insult.
