Weʼve raised £0 to recover money from someone defrauding me, by stealing my money, faking a PayPal transaction email, left me hurt and hard to trust people.

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.
I was going to sell my phone for a small price, was given an offer, but the buyer manipulated me, by offering me a higher price but instead, said he paid through PayPal, sent me a fake email from paypal, who knew nothing about it. He asked me for the most expensive postage, told me to send him an email of proof of postage, which I did, so I had no way of getting it back. I felt very stressed and vulnerable afterwards and don't feel like I can trust people easily again. I was selling honestly and openly, a very good phone, no wear or tear, easily worth what he said he would pay. I'm a disabled man, living on my own trying to pay for everything on my benefits.
