Man posts clippings of baby with heart condition to cheat people

A man is alleged to have conned many people into donating money by using a social media post of a mother pleading for donations to treat her baby's heart disease.

The man, known only as Guan, posted the photos of the baby named Amber on Facebook last year.

Many people donated money after reading his post, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.

Amber's mother, Nancy Chan, came to know about the scam after a netizen alerted her of the post.

When contacted, Chan said she had stop­ped asking public for donations since April 2015, and that her girl has already recovered.

She said she had asked the man to take down the post and urged the public not to fall into his trap.
