It said in the article that the person was unidentified, so I guess she can keep it till she's identified, at least.

Schinners was so moved by the story, he turned control of his Facebook tribute page over to the person he believed was the victim's sister - despite never having met or talked to the person on the phone.

The person must have a silver tongue to have been so convincing!

Or silver fingers, since it sounds like it was all through facebook.

Indeed, but either way they must have been persuasive for that guy to turn over his webpage to them.

Well, Mr Schinner's, the true criminal here is you. For being so goddamned criminally stupid.

Why isn't he getting the blame for this? Who the hell just turns over a charitable organization to a random person on the internet without doing any kind of background check or anything? As much as I deplore the conduct of our unidentified scam artist, I almost have trouble blaming him/her for this when there is such a glaring example of colossal idiocy staring us in the face.

A scam artist is only as successful as the person they're scamming is dumb. The person who gives in to the scam is the real perpetrator of the crime, since we wouldn't have scam artists if we didn't have people so dumb as to blindly go along with it.

Throw Schinner's in jail for a few weeks, please. Teach the damn fool a lesson!
