MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The family of a murdered Booker T. Washington teenager is warning people of scammers looking to take advantage of the tragedy.

A Facebook post by the high school warns people there are fake "GoFundMe" accounts being set up in the name of Myneishia "Shugnug" Johnson.

The Facebook post warns people DO NOT donate to these GoFundMe accounts. 

Anyone wishing to donate to the family, can do so by contacting the school at 901-416-7240 and the school will provide the legitimate information needed to make a donation to the family.
