I'm very cynical of people asking for money. Why? Bcoz a lot of people suck, are w/out conscious and are born liars.

 

That being said, I'm also one of the most compassionate people you'll ever meet. I usually give something if I have it on me.... Especially if they have a dog, damn - I'm a sucker for the pooches.

 

note to self:  get a dog.

Classic scam. We called this a year ago. No one stares at piles of money and gives it away willingly.

Because the media only cares about clickbait. And America is full of attention wh0res. Most are probably self reported.

Oh I agree the media loves clickbait, but who calls them to begin with?  The do-gooder? 

 

"Hello, USA Today?  I got a big story for you!!!"  :dunno:

Yeah, sounds like the money is gone. There's a hearing later today. I don't think this is a clear-cut story. Sounds like the dude has a drug problem. But it sounds like the couple are shady thieves too.

Much like "A Simple Plan" all 3 people had their lives going before all this. Poor drug addict didn't ask for any of it. He was homeless becaise he couldn't handle $20, much less $400k.

It's been a bad year. My old favorite restaurant closed down, and my new favorite restaurant sucks.

Well said.

I did read that GoFundMe had set aside 20 grand just to make sure this guy had basic housing in shower and food and stuff. While all this got litigated.

They're also looking at and talking about rehab facilities.

Ironically, the above probably has a much better chance of doing this guy is some good than the four hundred grand or whatever it was.

The couple is a receptionist and a carpenter. And just coincidentally, after all this money came in, they were able to buy a BMW for Cash & Go on exotic vacations.

I know nobody's innocent here other than well-intentioned owners I guess. But of the two parties, at least the homeless guy has a legitimate problem. As far as I know being a completely immoral lying Thief isn't a recognized medical condition. And there ain't no rehab for that. Other than jail.

If it was a total scam it was brilliant. Although a homeless tranny could have doubled the take.

You win.  And I don't care.

If the media is announcing this, let's give it a few days, eventually the actual truth might/maybe emerge, trust nothing the media says at face value.....HTH

Anyone who contributed when it got to 50k is a sucker. That's more than enough to get anyone on their feet. Should have moved on to another cause.

If you contribute to go fund me for anyone you dont know or are associated with you are an idiot!

Didnt anyone think this story was fishy? Anyone who fell for this BS deserves to have their money taken from them.
