Uncool. Uncool and absolutely shameless.
Noah Pozner is one of many Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims who was laid to rest this week, but at least one despicable individual doesn't think his family has suffered enough!
A fraudulent website was set up in the boy's name earlier this week, in an attempt to steal money from the heartbroken masses world-wide who thought they could assist the victim's grieving family.
Noah's uncle, Alex Haller, notified the FBI as soon as he stumbled upon the scam website directing donations to an unknown address.
Alex admitted this faux charitable website is added pain for an already stressed family. He said:
"These scammers are taking away from families and the spirits of dead kids."
The mastermind behind this sham isn't immediately known, but Anderson Cooper confronted Noel Alba, a woman who lives at the unknown address, and she denied any involvement.
How a person finds it within themselves to capitalize off any tragedy is beyond us, but… this?! Preying on a family greiving over the senseless murder of a beautiful 6-year-old-boy?!
Diabolical. Contemptible. Disgraceful. Vile. Reprehensible. Immoral. Heinous… Our thesaurus has many words to describe this behavior and we are reluctant to choose just one.
The Pozner family has reclaimed NoahPozner.org and legitimate donations can be made on his behalf.
