Would you share this Article with others?

The social networking post: "I Brittany Maynard decided to end my life on Nov 1st," is a scam. The post was created to lure potential victims to the fake and malicious website: www.brittanymaynard.com, in an attempt to trick them into sharing or commenting on the post, by claiming that they can help prevent Brittany Maynard from ending her life.

But, the scam has nothing to do with preventing Brittany Maynard from ending her life. Brittany Maynard is a 29-year-old female (see her in the picture with her dog below) who made national headlines in October, after choosing to end her own life instead of suffering from terminal brain cancer.
