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?
