Don't Fall for GoFundMe Scams
This week, I announced my apoyo acerca de Proyecto de Ley de la Cámara de Representantes 1185, which requires transparency measures in Florida Law to protect Floridians from crowdfunding scams from sources like GoFundMe. In the wake of disasters like the Surfside Condo Collapse or Hurricane Ian, we have seen these crowdfunding sites allow fraudulent accounts to run rampant across the internet, tugging at people's heartstrings to help victims of these disasters. Often these are scam accounts, and I am fed up with companies like GoFundMe, not putting up a fight to protect consumers. Enough is enough, and now is the time to pass meaningful legislation that protects Florida consumers, and cracks down on these fraudulent accounts.
