His dad better follow through on this.

How many times do we have to be lied to?! This kid is clearly trying to scam the Internet into holding a toy drive for him to right this horrible wrong, and he would have gotten away with it too if his mom hadn't stepped in. I still feel stupid though because I saw the status earlier and immediately sent him a dozen Playstation 4 consoles. My heart is just too big!

Sadly, this is far from the only instance of a Christmastime Facebook post going horribly wrong.
