Beware of Adoption Scams, page 1


Adoption scams can occur with birthmothers-to-be, adoptive parents, and adoption professionals.  Always beware of the situation. Do not let your emotions overpower your good judgement.

Listed below are common situations which we have observed and has been reported.  Watch for the signs and always be extra careful. 

Do not jump to conclusions and try not to be overly suspicious and hurt honest people, yet keep in mind a scam can occur.

Agree upon and sign documents that commit all parties to an adoption situation. Memories can fail and be selective.
