Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
A lovely pensioner so close to my heart has always seen the good in everyone, no negative assumptions or judgements, she has pure faith in humanity.
However, recently she has been scammed out of handing over £8500 to a fraudster pretending to be from her bank. This being the majority of her savings. She gets her monthly pension as income and that is all. After talking to her bank she is unable to get any of the money back due to her unfortunately authorising the money to be removed as she believed their well thought of story was true.
We are hoping to raise some money back for her, although we know reaching the complete figure would be a miracle, any donation would be extremely appreciated.
As everyone says, you do not think it would happen to you or your family member. These guys are professionals.
