Adoption Fraud Scheme

There are those, who take advantage of couples having to wait long periods to adopt a child. In a recent scam, people were solicited by a bogus agency all over the United States and paid $200.00 each. Once they had paid, they never heard from the agency again.

The majority of the solicitation were from ads placed on the internet.

People attempting to adopt children are advised to check into the agency carefully and get references.
