Tragedy brings out the best and the worst in people, and the situation in Moore, Okla., is a classic example.

People from all over the world have responded with help in many forms, but as always the case some low-life types have been busy at work trying to take advantage of those who have already suffered beyond belief.

People who charge $40 a case for water that usually sells for under $10 or promise to clean up and repair homes, but demand money upfront and then are never seen again, deserve a special place in hell.

While families are burying their dead, ruthless scum are proving that evil is alive and well.
