Scammers are taking advantage of a baby formula shortage, Federal Trade Commission
This baby formula shortage is getting serious. So serious President Biden invoked the Defense Production act to o speed production of infant formula. He even authorized the Pentagon to use commercial aircrafts to import supplies from other countries.
The House passed $28 million in emergency funding to address and we’ll see what the senate does with that next.
So more help is on the way but in the mean time parents are struggling to find formula and are getting desperate. That desperation has scammers coming out of the woodworks tricking parents with fake websites, social media profiles, fake online stores, and they’re charging really high prices.
So the Federal Trade Commission offered some tips to not get hoodwinked.

911 Dispatcher Could Be Fired for ‘Hanging Up’ on Caller During Buffalo Shooting
A crazy thing happened during the mass shooting in Buffalo when an employee in the midst of the shooing called 911. The employee said the 911 operator took a nasty tone with her and hung up on her.
She told The Buffalo News “She was yelling at me, saying, ‘Why are you whispering? You don’t have to whisper,’” Rogers told The Buffalo News, “and I was telling her, ‘Ma’am, he’s still in the store. He’s shooting. I’m scared for my life. I don’t want him to hear me. Can you please send help?’ She got mad at me, hung up in my face.”
In one article she said after that she called her boyfriend to have him call 911.
Authorities have pulled the 911 call for review and placed the operator who has worked there for 8 years on paid administrative leave, pending an investigation.
Unbelievable and that makes me think about how much does something like that happen.

Speaking of things happening. Imagine working at your job and you find a note someone left and in it they’re begging for help. What do you?

Thanks to his quick reaction police were able to locate them while they were still on the property. The man ran when the cops approached him and that led to a short foot chase before he was eventually arrested.
He is being charged with kidnapping and evading arrest. and his bond has been set at $35,000
