Fake Social Media Accounts Target Boston Bombings

A handful of fake social media accounts have emerged to capitalize on the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, which took at least three lives and injured more than a hundred others. One Twitter account with the handle @_BostonMarathon began pandering for donations in the form of retweets within hours of the explosions, sending out messages that read "For every retweet we receive we will donate $1 to the #BostonMarathon victims #PrayForBoston."
