We deal with a lot of scumbags in our line of work but this next one might be one of the sleaziest things we’ve seen. You just don’t mess with grieving kids or exploit their pain for your own benefit.
A thirteen year-old kid loses his mom, Crystal Macura, to the drug epidemic. The aunt, Gina Amore, decides that she’s going to start a GoFundMe for burial expenses for her sister. She plays at the heartstrings by saying that it’s so the young boy can bury his mother. She slaps a picture of her sister and her sister’s son in better times.
(The boy is in good hands with another aunt, who is his legal guardian, and has been for a while. So, the child is safe in case you are all wondering.)
They reach their goal, but it turns out that the burial expenses ended up being taken care of between a handful of sources. Gina allegedly used a small portion of donations for an urn to keep the remains in and a couple necklaces that hold pieces of Crystal in them. There has been no proof she’s even done that. What was left of the money, around $650, was supposed to go to the mourning child.
What happens next is unreal. Gina, who has never taken care of this kid, and has just recently got her own kids back from DCF custody, decided that she was going to hold on to the cash until the kid is eighteen. That’s in five years. Right. Gina and Tom have never been guardians of this child. Gina and Tom barely have solidified guardianship over their own kids.
We received a number of emails, from sources involved in this, asking for our help with getting the young boy back his donation money. The sources say that Gina can’t prove that the money is in a savings bond, has been put in a trust, or even still exists.
That wouldn’t be an issue but Gina, and her boyfriend Thomas Hannah, are two of the biggest slugrakes in existence and seemingly can’t be trusted. They have a lengthy history of battles with the law and drug use. Sources say the couple are still using regardless of things like this:
Just get a load of their history:
An Uxbridge, Mass. woman was taken into custody following her arraignment Wednesday. Gina Amore is charged in hit and run that left a 10-year-old boy injured.It happened Tuesday morning as students and parents were crossing Pleasant Street, on their way to school at Midland Street Elementary. Shea says the boy was in the crosswalk with his mom and others when Amore hit him.Police caught up with Amore later thanks in part to eyewitnesses. She’s facing a number of charges, but her father says her rights were violated.
Hm, no wonder people are concerned that the money is gone. They just scream
scam reliable. I’m sure their hearts are really in the right place or what’s left of them after all that apparent crack use.
I hate GoFundMe scams with every fiber of my being, but, what kind of monsters use a child’s dead mother for a payday? Think the donors would be interested to know that the money is probably be gone entirely?
I’m sure Gina and Tom will have some lengthy excuse as to why it’s not being given back to this kid. You can use the contact information below to let us know when the kid gets it back.
