I thought we’d seen it all when it came to GoFundMe scams. Then someone sent us this today from my neck of the woods in Westfield:
I figured it HAD to be a joke. I mean, seriously? This sounds like someone trolling to get on Turtleboy on purpose. He wants you to buy him $995 shoes that he can’t buy for himself because “I have other things I’ll be spending money on.” This can’t possibly be real. Except it was…..
If you don’t see why this would end up on Turtleboy, then you don’t know Turtleboy. Just because you’re being honest doesn’t make your actions any less ratchet Dylan.
“This isn’t some scam to try and hustle your hard earned money to pay my bills or buy food to survive.”
Believe it or not the people who are doing GFMs to pay their bills are more noble than you. Sure, they’ve completely abandoned their shame by getting other people to bail them out of their responsibilities. But at least you need food and shelter to survive. Begging friends to pay for your $995 Gucci sneakers is much, much, more ratchet than 99% of the people we profile. Just because you’re honest about your intentions and aren’t selling food stamps to raise the cash does not change that fact.
Here’s a idea that clearly is lacking for millenials like yourself – pay for your own shit. And if you can’t afford to buy something, that’s OK too. Because sometimes life is about choices and we don’t get everything we want. Or just buy shoes that cost $400 instead of $995. It’s called “budgeting.” It’s a 90’s thing.
All I’m saying is, if Facebook actually approves of this fundraiser, my head is going to explode after all the things they’ve taken down from us.
