We should have seen it coming . . . with just about every major event or tragedy that happens in our world today, someone out there will come up with a scam to try and con people out of their money. The latest one is the Haitian Earthquake Relief Fraud. The sad part is that the victims of these scams are people who just want to do some good by helping out another person in trouble.
