JDA Talks Crowdfunding Fraud

Saturday, May 02, 2015 , , , 5 Comments

There are a few things I'm truly passionate about. Federal Reserve asshattery. Cat rescue. Personal freedom and responsibility. So when most of those (except the Fed) aligned after a reporter in Philadelphia reached out to me to be a part of her story on GoFundMe fraud, I was all in.

I started the Go Fraud Me Facebook page after I encountered resistance from GoFundMe to shut down a fraudulent fundraiser started by the elementary school dropout neighbor of Bart the "Miracle" Cat, a cat in Florida who somehow miraculously rose from the dead after being buried for 5 days. Yeah no. That's no miracle, it's the same kind of abuse I see almost every single day as a cat rescuer. Nice try though. The fundraiser is still up and Bart is still in the care of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, thankfully, while the irresponsible trash who buried him alive are now duking things out in court.

Nydia Han at 6abc in Philly asked me to be a part of her story on GFM -- the good and the bad -- and I was happy to give my $0.02 FWIW.
