Woman Raises $200,000 To Avoid Eviction For Her Three Daughters – Except They’re Not Her Daughters


Eviction Notice

A Las Vegas woman hoping to avoid eviction for her three daughters was able to raise over $200,000 on GoFundMe.  But there’s a catch – the girls are not actually her daughters.  In July, 32-year-old Dasha Kelly launched a GoFundMe page titled “Help My Girls & I avoid eviction”.  After her story was featured on CNN, donations swelled to over $234,000.  But shortly after the segment aired, a woman came forward claiming that she – not Kelly – was the girls’ mother.    Kelly admitted that the children were her partners’s, and that she does not live with them.  She claims to be a “mother figure” to the girls and often takes care of them.  GoFundMe has frozen the donations and will give donors two weeks to request a refund.  Was Kelly being deceitful here – or is it a valid claim since she does sometimes take care of her “daughters”.  Should GoFundMe be directly responsible for making sure its campaigns aren’t scams?
