Sick: Fake Twitter accounts already soliciting ‘donations’ for victims of Boston explosions

Unreal. Twitter is already suspending fake accounts promising donations to the victims of today’s explosions at the Boston Marathon in exchange for retweets.

Note that there was no way to donate money through the fake account; the goal, apparently, was merely to collect followers and retweets. Is it possible that makes the scam even more pathetic?

    Wow. They act fast.

    It is things like this that make me wish for a herd-culling event. My guess is scum sucking bottom feeders will go early in the chaos.
