After last night’s story about the kidnapping of the 11 year old girl in Springfield blew up the Internet a friend said to me today, “how long until someone makes a fake GoFundMe to try to profit off of it?” The answer was apparently 5-6 hours.
According to Amanda Disley, the chick who not only called 911 when she saw Miguel Rodriguez’ blue Honda Civic in Springfield, but recorded herself and her husband pursuing the vehicle, this GoFundMe is a fake.
The GFM was created by someone using the name Jana Cottle, who the Internet says is a woman in her 50’s in Springfield.
This chick was the first person we saw share it.
At first glance we thought Janell Martin might’ve been the one to create the GFM using a fake name, since she shared it at the exact time it was created and never got back to us. This chick had the complete ratchet resume. CNA….

Saved France from the terrorists.
But upon further inspection it appears as if this young woman is friends with the much older Jana Cottle, and they made it together.
I can’t tell if they’re scam artists or if Jana Cottle just doesn’t get how any of this works.
Oh for fuck’s sake. This is why you don’t let old people use the Interwebz folks. Because they fuck around and end up on Turtleboy. Not good. Someone should probably tell Jana that it’s extremely fucked up to create a GFM for someone you haven’t met or even spoken to, and collect hundreds of dollars in the hours immediately following an event like this. Even if her intentions weren’t nefarious, she made it seem like she knew this woman personally. She clearly doesn’t and Amanda doesn’t want your charity.
