GoFundMe is facing potential fraud investigations by the states of Florida, Texas and Missouri after it reversed a decision to redistribute money given by thousands of donors to the Canadian “Freedom Convoy” protesting the COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
On Friday, GoFundMe released $1 million to the organizers of the page, before claiming they would spend the rest of the money donated by ordinary people to their preferred charities. The post by GoFundMe originally said that donors could submit a request for a full refund by February 19th.
Within hours, however, GoFundMe walked back the refund applications, instead announcing it would be refunding donors automatically.
An alternative place to donate is now available via the Christian crowdfunding website GiveSendGo, and as of Saturday morning, the site was struggling to keep up with all the traffic to their website.Please consider supporting by sharing or making a donation.
