A elderly veteran in need

Mike Cover is a 80yr veteran that like most of our elderly is stuck barely being able to pay his basic bills. Then when his truck broke down The repair shop tried to take advantage of him. Then when they found out he had no money they tried to get him to sign over the title to his truck. when he refused too, they charged him $1500 to get his truck back. Because of how they tore his engine apart and put everything out in the weather he now needs a engine. Mike had pretty much gave up and was ready to just put himself into a VA home because he can't get around. So we stepped in. If you have a few spare dollars please donate via paypal to c69ss396@yahoo.com This veteran fought for us, now lets fight for him!

Here is the link to the thread; http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/6-0...-80yr-old.html

I read as much as I could of the saga. I hope it's a legit call for help. I'm gonna tell myself it is and send money. If not then it won't be the first or last time I get scammed, but at least I'll sleep better knowing I didn't turn down helping a fellow vet, real or not.
