Crooks prey on Bus Beheader Victim with Money-Begging Scams
Scammers are in operation, it has been revealed, pretending to be members of Greyhound Bus Beheader victim, Tim McLean's family. One bloodsucking vulture has posed as Tim McLean's SISTER, in a Facebook scam.
One Facebook site dedicated to the memory of Tim McLean, 22, was launched by Ron Schinners of Vancouver. He told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. a woman contacted him saying she was McLean's sister, Amanda. She said the family was having financial problems dealing with funeral expenses, so he set up a PayPal account to collect donations for the family.
However, McLean's real sister, now Amanda Corrigan visited the site and told Schinners the family wasn't receiving anything, the CBC report said. He shut down the PayPal account and told the CBC he feels "really stupid" about being duped.
