On February 4 2012, an Open Letter was presented to Facebook in reference to the escalating issue of ‘Sick Child Hoaxes, or “baby charity scams” as a Facebook spokesperson later referred. The letter stated that several websites had made collective efforts to prevent the spread of these photographs, and called for their removal. It also requested that Facebook increase public awareness of the issue and act more proactively in preventing and removing these hoaxes/ scams. To date we believe Facebook's efforts appear lacking at best. Please read our new letter to Facebook and take the time to sign the included petition. Help us help you.
