Mom Finds Son For Adoption on Craigslist

My Kid Is Not Up For Adoption!

Posting photos online has pros and cons. Families separated by mountains and seas can share photos and stories instantaneously, but there are hazards to the free space as well. A Massachusetts mother recently discovered her son was being falsely advertised on Craigslist for adoption. A good Samaritan of sorts notified the woman that her kid's photos were being used by a scammer.

Following up on her lead, the curious mom emailed the poster and asked for a picture of the child that they looked to place. Much to her surprise, the mommy was horrified to see her own child staring back at her. Safe in his home, the impostor pulled off his stunt by swiping the picture of the youngster from the family's blog with hopes of collecting a $300 fee to start an adoption process. This is a red flag for the many women sharing their experiences on mommy blogs. Do you openly share photos of your family online?
