One wonders why GoFundMe thought it was a good idea to arbitrarily redirect the Freedom Convoy funds in the first place. However, someone at the head office noticed people were not pleased with the move.
Did they seriously not see this coming?
The whole thing is a bit surreal.
New crowdfunding at https://www.givesendgo.com/FreedomConvoy2022
Raised over $1,000,000 in less than 24 hours.
I'm done with gofundme, this was the last straw. No more contributions or sharing, ever
What they didn't see coming was the charge-backs from donors who were upset with the "redirection" of their funds. No, not refund requests, but credit card charge-backs which would have cost GoFraudMe somewhere between $15 and $35 each. "Voluntarily" giving people refunds will cost them far less.
