Adoption Process

How the scam works:

(with video below) It has been reported that scammers set up fake adoption companies asking victims to pay thousands of dollars. The so-called “legal experts on adoption proceedings” meet their victims through social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter.

Using professional verbiage, they justify the charges as coverage of medical expenses for the pregnant women who plan to give away their babies. In reality, they collect the money wired to them and run.

In a different variation of the scam, women with criminal past look for couples willing to adopt and promise to give them the baby once born. Watch the powerful video below to see in action this variation of the Adoption scam, exposed with hidden cameras.

How to avoid:

If you are thinking of adopting a child, only go to legitimate agencies, not to the ones whose ads you’d find on social networking sites or in the “classifieds” section of a newspaper. These will only lead to heartbreak.
