Earlier this week we broke a story about some Spencer gypsies who were using a GoFundMe scam to sucker people into feeling bad for them and paying for their lunches because they were too lazy to get jobs. Well apparently the Fitchburg/Leominster/Garnder area has their own GoFundMe trap queen, and her name is Stacey Collins.

She works in partnership with her husband Nick Collins from the Burg:

We’ve had a shitload of people reach out to us, imploring us to investigate them as well. We like to expose this kind of stuff, not necessarily to humiliate anyone, but rather to warn people not to become the next victim. Because spreading awareness is what Turtleboy Sports is all about. Let’s take a look at what we’ve found.

Apparently the scam is simple – go on the yard sale sites and claim to have a $100 Visa gift card for sale for $40, because they would rather have cash:

12435831_10207033211020532_1585312885_n12463497_10207033212220562_109533840_n

So this is just Internet conjecture, but generally speaking, where there is smoke there is often fire. A lot of people around Christmas time were posting warnings on yard sale pages about getting duped by these upstanding individuals:

12443189_10207033318623222_61677421_n

12468227_10207033319023232_320418687_n

12442730_10207033318823227_259373531_n

12468292_1665621870387756_1159056132_n

Alright, first of all, not a smart move buying a gift card from someone posting on a yard sale site on Facebook. The mere fact that they’re willing to part with a $100 gift card for $40 or $50 should’ve been your first warning. But nonetheless, there’s still people out there who are naive, and it’s pretty messed up that crackheads are taking advantage of them at Christmas time in order to fuel their habits.

They seem to pretty primarily on the elderly:

12463743_10207033321143285_1744397539_n 12463999_10207033319343240_1093920582_n

12463921_1665621897054420_1808727490_n

This is evidently how it usually goes down. They post in one of the yard sale pages about the gift cards. If someone shows an interest in the comments they get a private message like this:

12464006_10207033318463218_1693301225_n

When they meet up to get the card, they give you a phone number of some friend of theirs, so you can call up and “verify” that the card is legit. They of course don’t tell you that you just spoke with an associate of theirs. Other people have claimed that while they were on the phone with “Visa” Nick and Stacey Collins literally just ran away, cash in hand.

12442898_1665621860387757_994326137_n-2

Just like Sammie Holland, they’re using their tear jerking tall tales as bait in order to guilt the victims into buying their crap:

12463923_1665621913721085_1910397673_n

Lots of normal people get arrested for skipping court. Naturally then she wants people to give her cash for her never ending supply of gift cards so she can bail her All-Star husband out of jail on Christmas.

Unfortunately they have two children, which they claim to be needing the money for. But according to this woman, Stacey and Nick Collins don’t have custody of those children – she does:

Oops!!

According to Nick he’s getting them back though:

If these jerk whistles are allowed to raise children then I’ve completely lost faith in the system.

So yea, we did this because we wanted to raise awareness up in the 978. Share this blog with your grandma so she knows not to fall for these people’s schemes. They might seem like nice, reputable people trying to raise money for their kids, but that’s because drugs can make people pretend that they’re something they are not. Anything to get that next fix. If Stacey or Nick does message you out of the blue offering you a gift card, do what this person did:

    Dear turtleboy….
    So you always post about the worse in people wright… Why don’t you try posting something good like those two people from Fitchburg that you talked so much shit about… Well try letting people know that they fix there lives and have been clean for almost a year and they both went throw the hardest adult rehabilitation centers that are out there and they both found there path in life … You may not care but you should post that … They my have been doing bad things but if you knew anything about addiction then you would know why they did what they where doing.. They are good people but they got stuck in a evil thing called addition … It well take every thing you have and if it don’t kill you it will take your soul … till you hit rock bottom … I know some people that did worse things then what they did…. And you know what those people turned there lives around and became some of the most strangest people I’ve ever met …. So please part something about that … Some of the people that are on this page should know….. If God forgave them for all there sins and has put them on his path of righteousness and still believes they are going to do something good for people then at least tell people how they have turned there lives around …

    Ok I have to say for all of you calling these innocent people stupid it seems like they targeted most of their loved ones!! And alot of people would see this as a legit thing with the holidays, alot of people get gift cards that they won’t use, and sell them for half the actual amount of the card! I do agree that they should of called the number on the back of the card before handing her the $, instead of letting these sleezy bitchs do it! Bottom line don’t turn it on the victims these people are disgusting assholes, but karmas a bitch and JAPE if its so dumb, and poorly put together why do you read every article they write lol they must be doing something right!!

    Get used to this. This is the way society is headed with lax drug laws. More of these scams, WAY more house B&Es (really, what adult enters someone elses home unless they’re on drugs) , and über liberal judges who simply coddle the criminal

    Zero ethics, morals and standards. They have learned that this behavior is OK and can get away with it.

    I guess some will say they have a right to scam people — the same ones that condone aggressive panhandlers. You reap what you sow.
