There's some pretty righteous indignation going on in this thread over at CyberCrimeOps:

They're researching dozens of fake charities in Cameroon that claim to be orphanages. The charities are able to officially register with Cameroon's government. They try to collect donations or even offer the orphans for sale, I mean adoption. (One website even had a shopping cart :shock: ) Meanwhile real orphans are living in deplorable conditions, underfed and beaten unconscious for stealing food, while scammers steal money that might have gone to feed them.
