Here’s your GoFundMe scam of the day out of good ol’ Worcester, which was shared in the Webster, Dudley, Oxford, Thompson community forum….
Oh for fuck’s sake. Is there anything out there that these swamp nuggets don’t think should be paid for by strangers? You know who wants to go to Vegas? Me. But I can’t, because I’m an adult who understands that traveling across the country with my kids is not something I’m entitled to. For the record, I feel the same way about cheerleaders and Pop Warner kids panhandling outside of grocery stores and on street corners. Stop training kids to beg for things that aren’t necessities!!
As a general rule of thumb I don’t donate to anyone who has ever used a Snapchat filter,
Currently has a tittoo
Does bathroom selfies
Or posts pictures of their kids at the graveyard with some chick drinking a Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
This thing sounds like a HUGE scam. He was “picked” to go to Vegas for a “showcase” on acting and modeling (he’s 7). Translation – some scam company goes around telling thousands of gullible idiots their kids are gonna be movie stars, and if they can get 20-30 takers in the bunch to shell over $7K then they make cash money. Obviously this kid is in high demand, since the company is willing to contribute nothing towards him getting there.
Secondly, you’re a single Mom who can’t pay the bills, but you claim to have spent over $4,000 already for this trip? Oh, and if they don’t come up with the other $3,000, then the $4K she already spent goes “down the drain.” It’s just gone forever with no explanation. The prestigious modeling and acting showcase company keeps it as a retainer in case you want to get scammed next year.
Thirdly, she doesn’t list the company, the date or location of the “showcase,” or link to anything to validate this. You just have to take her word for it, so we decided to do some research for her. Here’s the link to their Facebook page event, and here’s what a talent manager who has attended these conventions before says about iPOP:
YOU WANT THE TRUTH? My name is Wendy Alane Wright and I am a Talent Manager at WAW Entertainment in Los Angeles (www.wawentertainment.com) I attended iPOP and there were 700 kids there to see. I signed one AMAZING child from it. I am working closely with her and her parents to build her acting career. iPOP itself is a very legit event. Yes, they do put actors and models in the room with legit Talent Agents and Managers. I can personally vouch for that. In the managers and agents rooms where we all gather between events there are some HEAVY HITTERS in there. If you have the money and it causes you NO Hardship…then go for it! MY ISSUE WITH iPOP is IT IS VERY, VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE and that is why I typically do NOT RECOMMEND IT.
There are other ways to meet the exact same agents and only pay $1000- $1500 for a showcase and BELOW I WILL TELL YOU ABOUT THEM. I don’t believe ANYONE on this earth should be paying $5,000 – $15,000 to meet agents. No one. That is my personal opinion. As a Talent Manager in Los Angeles who signs actors every year, I know for a fact you don’t need to do iPOP, IMTA or any other expensive showcase like that to meet legit Talent Agents, Modeling Agents, and Talent Managers. (although I have found some FANTASTIC clients at these events.)
Every single day actors and models get into this business without ever spending that kinds of money. I would say…be very concerned of showcase systems that have BIG Hype, Lavish expensive Hotels because that means you are paying for lot of frivolity that has nothing to do with a one on one meeting with an Industry Pro. You don’t need any of that to get discovered and signed to a great agency. So settle in, relax and let me explain what you can do instead. I have several suggestions
Oh look, we were right. It’s for rich kids whose parents have money to burn, not for single Moms from Worcester who’ve been conned into thinking this is their ticket to stardom. As it turns out this is not the most effective way for your kid to become a model, if you’re predisposed to ruining your crotch fruit’s childhood by getting them into modeling.
Fourthly, “I’m not the type of person to ask for any kind of help”? Yea, the GoFundMe machine seems to indicate that this is a lie. Because she started another GoFundMe for this in the summer.
Oh, and here’s the best part of the scam – iPop gets these people to be salesmen for their company too:
So yea, if you’re interested in paying a bunch of money to have your business appear in an ad in a Las Vegas showcase that preys on gullible parents, feel free to write a check to iPop.
The bottom line is that GoFundMe was supposed to exist so that people could raise money for stuff like medical emergencies, and other legitimate fundraisers for people who are really in need. But it’s also given Worcester gutterslugs the ability to Internet panhandle for free trips to Vegas, because no one has any shame any more. And that’s too bad because shame keeps us humble. Either way, hopefully Desirae reads this, realizes she’s been fooled, and signs her kid up for basketball instead.
I would donate to her, providing she had up to the minute proof that she had an iud, clean std test, and a shaved smooth cunt. Yea, id donate jizz and and an orgasm to her sperm receptacle.
Rated “W” for wood
i miss the days when fat was kept in the kitchen and out of the public eye.
“there are some HEAVY HITTERS in there”
If they are referring to the mothers, and they are like the GFM mom, than there is no doubt about the number of “heavy hitters” there.
I believe she is delusional and really thinks Las Vegas will pan out. I believe that she was told her kid has got “it”.
37 years ago, I took a 3 day Formula Ford driving course. About $3500 then or $10K now. Don’t regret it for a second. Nothing like going 100+ MPH with your butt 2 inches off the ground and your feet ahead of the front wheels. This was after I had seen a Formula Ford ball up and fly through the air a couple of hundred feet a couple of years previous after some suspension failure. Young and stupid.
About 5 years later I get a call from one of the instructors (raced the Daytona 24 hours, Sebring) about a new racing school series. I ask how much? 35k (per year in 1986) OR $78,000 in today’s money. The 3.5K was a stretch. I would have been a field filler spending the 35K. Must have really been going through the Rolodex to get to me.
That series in later years had sons of F1 champions. More than a few Indycar(some 500 winners) + NASCAR drivers. Also some lower class winners at LeMans.
But, I have no doubt I was called to be a field filler and that would be on my dime. Not a lot different for her other than the fact she believes. I had no allusions of being a pro racing driver.
she should probably invest money in braces for that kid, he ain’t going anywhere with that mouth full of chicklets
This is what happens when you shut down BackPage.com
P.S. I love the go fund me scam section.. I like to read what these ratchets come up with as a sob story and watch how many idiots tale the bait haha.. Keep up the great writes
Why does every single rarchet start off thier go fund me with..” Im a single parent and I dont normally ask for help” like yes yes you do everyday.. Your welfare is help your section 8 is help your food stamps you sell are supposed to be help… A trip to Vegas for you and your kid HA Fuck that I want a trip to Vegas.. No Shame no pride no work ethic= RATCHETS
I usually agree with the turtle bloggers on almost everything but not these GoFundMe’s. Yes there’s no shame anymore but if an idiot wants to waste their hard earned money, its their prerogative!!!!
WHO CARES about GFM’s?!?! Its no different than the junkbox at south station who approaches me with a sad sack story about being stranded in Boston and need money to buy a train ticket home. If i give them money, is it their fault for scamming me, or my fault for falling for it? Same thing here but people begging for money on the internet. Who looks for this shit? Who cares? Why is it even worth discussing? Sorry but i don’t believe in “GFM scams” – if you’re stupid enough to fall for it then you didn’t deserve to have money in the first place.
That’s not me. The fucking cunt didn’t curse or say anything violent. Here’s an example.
If there’s a problem with junkies in your area, get off your fat fucking ass, hunt them down, and shoot them dead. All junkies will eventually die. You would be speeding up the process so nobody has to deal with their worthless existence, so everyone wins.
I actually didn’t mean to direct my comment to you, just a general observation on GFM and the notion that people can be scammed by them.
Go to the bank and get a loan? Wait that won’t work, I have to actually have a job…
stop wasting time and sign the 7 year old up for ssi and welfare. kids gonna be a loser and beggar just like the cum guzzler that gave birth to him. new life rule. if you dont have a job then u dont live. simple
She better get to shilling out that fat ass of hers. She’s got a lot of fucking to do before hitting the $3,000 mark looking like that.
I saw the scratcher tats and the painted on eyebrows and immediately rejected any possible urge to hand her more than a wadded up ball of lint.
More embarrassing white folk.
More of the same racist jargon from the Randalllll the Racist.
Randalllll, you’re nothing but a shit-stain on the fabric of society.
You should take all people of your color and move far away from us. Stop following us around and decreasing property value.
Dude, I live in a mansion in Shrewsbury…you crackers are bringing down MY property value.
When I was a kid, I got discovered at an Auburn Mall kiosk. After attending the expensive modeling schools of the people that discovered me, and having expensive professional photo shoots done by the photographers recommended by the acting school that discovered me, my parents eventually realized that I was ugly, and nobody would ever want me to model for them. It was a $2500 lesson.
Get a real fucking job and a life you fucking thot
iPOP is the biggest, most well known scam in history. I have worked with actors for 26 years. Merrimack Valley Turtle Bae seems well aware of this…
