4-Year-Old Mauled By Dog Becomes Victim Of Online Scam

A 4-year-old Phoenix boy who is recovering from being brutally mauled by a pit bull in February has become the victim of an online scam.

Kevin Vicente has undergone a number of expensive surgeries since the attack. His family set up a Facebook page to update supporters on his condition and a YouCaring page to accept donations to pay his medical costs.

But Arizona news station 3TV discovered that someone stole Kevin’s photos and story and set up another Facebook page. The account claims to be accepting donations for a boy named Adam Lewis and asks for donations at this YouCaring page.

So far the scammer, appears to have only taken $30.
