Is it wrong I see "Scam" written all over this? (slighly O/T)

I, for some reason, just totally feel that this is a scam.. but what kind of a person would ask for donated breast milk as a scam? Not that I can donate anyway, but what do you guys think? Should I pass it on?

I dunno... I have never heard of milk banks charging but I am not familiar with them as I donate through Human Milk for Human Babies SC branch... I cannot imagine what all is wrong with him that he would need radiation... I just dunno. I don't think it is a scam but I don't think the whole truth is there.

and IMO, who wouldn't hospitalize when the doctor says to!

It just doesn't add up, does it?.

Not sure. The data is consistent across posts. As a former PI, seems legit. I think it's more of a case of misinformation - maybe she doesn't understand what the problem is that doctors want to investigate? I found her Twitter account and Myspace that look to match up to her - she seems real just not knowledgeable (maybe very young?)

I am on a local one myself. I no longer have milk as my kidos are 3 and 5 but I wish I had known about this site when my LO refused the bottle and I had 100 + ozs in the freezer I had to toss. People can post they need milk and others post when they have soem to donate.

The link is no good now so I cannot comment on it but I have donated and got the person in need via FB at Eats of Feets.

FWIW, I also saw "scam" the first time I saw the craigslist ad. I don't know why, that was just my visceral reaction. However, I saw on HM4HB that Yecenia is willing to meet up with some of the donor moms, so that indicates legitimacy to me Smile
