People hoping to contribute to the online fundraiser can donate online or send a check to the UPS store, next to a Baskin Robbins in a strip mall at 4833 Front St. in Castle Rock, according to the fundraising page. The page applauds Trump and says Americans should “pitch in” to get the border wall started.
One fraud expert said the postal box was odd but, in general, GoFundMe is reputable. The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office, which regulates nonprofits doing business in the state, said it did not have authority over the fundraiser.
So what I want to know is when this guy and the money drop off the radar, do the duped have any recourse to get their dollars back? I actually applaud this guy for coming up with a scam to relieve a bunch of fools of their money by perfectly playing into their emotions.Kolfage first said in an email to The Denver Post that he is using the Castle Rock address because he has business partners near there who are helping him manage the fundraising campaign until he gets more volunteers.
In a later email, Kolfage declined to name those business partners and said they had “nothing to do with any of this, they are just helping me with mail.” He said it was difficult for him to go to a post office box every day because he is a triple amputee.
