Pie-Makers, Donors, Scammers Focus on Newtown


As for the possible malefactors: Website NotB4coffee.com reports that no sooner were the names of the first victims released, than Facebook and other web pages in their names began appearing, some soliciting donations. Shea Wong, a columnist for website Technorati, speculates that some fraction of these are illegit. She says that even fraudulent sites that do not request donations can make money for their creators other ways: Simply by attracting clicks and Likes, a site can make its re-sale value climb, so that when the perpetrator eventually sells it, flipping it to someone else, he does so at a profit.
