Ask Alex : Faking for Funds

Advice, Ask, Alex, Behavior, Opinion, relationship, girlfriend, boyfriend, exes, photos, pictures, commitment, compromise

Hey Alex!

A friend of mine recently set up a GoFundMe page for herself and her husband. It claims that her husband was diagnosed with cancer and they are needing money to cover medical and living expenses. He DOES NOT have cancer! In fact, they are both very much in good health. I confronted her about it and she just laughed and said that they thought it was a good way to get some extra money and that the people donating have the extra money to give. What should I do? It isn’t right!

Sincerely,

Concerned

 

Hey  Concerned!

You are 100% correct in that there is nothing right about the situation and kudos to you for having the ability to confront your friend about it! 

Not only is your friend’s actions morally wrong but also legally wrong. You should turn them into authorities and not think twice about it. A friend like that is not a friend worth keeping around.

There have been numerous cases just like this of people playing on the emotions of others to take advantage of crowdsourcing websites. Every one of them that has been reported has faced criminal charges such as theft by deception. Many of them have had to return the money to the donors as well.

Your friend is wrong in assuming that anyone donating has the “extra money” to give. There are plenty of good people in this world who will give their last dime to help out someone who they feel might need it more and it is exactly these people who need protection from vultures, such as your friend.

By turning your friend into authorities, not only are you stopping a bad deed but you are also protecting the innocent who are donating without question.

Turn your friend in to law enforcement and do it quickly. Then walk away knowing that you without a doubt did the right thing.

Sincerely,

Alex
