Do you share a post just because it’s “for a good cause”?

Well, I’ve been browsing through social media and then I saw a post about a kid needing money for surgery. The post claim that everytime the post is forwarded or shared, $0.10 would be raised… the post was pretty viral until someone pointed out that it was a scam in August!

Apparently the post has been started almost 8 months earlier (and the post stated that the kid would need surgery within 3 months or she would die)… so yeah… Busted!

But the funny thing is that, even though busted, the shares and forwarding goes on…

  1. That reminds me there was this woman stopping every vehicle asking for money to bury her husband and a distance away there was a shroud. I felt pity and gave her some money. A week later there was the same woman with the same sob story on another road with a shroud lying at a distance (lol)
