Rayshard Brooks’ relatives say bogus GoFundMe pages are being set up in the family’s name, prompting the crowdfunding site to move to dismantle them, a report said Tuesday.
Kin of the Atlanta, Ga., dad — who was killed in a controversial police shooting last week — told TMZ that they have only authorized one fundraising page but that others had sprung up.
GoFundMe responded to the complaint by saying, “We’ve removed several campaigns, fully refunded those donors, and will continue to remove any campaigns without a clear connection to Rayshard Brooks’ family.”
The family’s page has a goal of $1 million and received more than $135,000 in donations as of Tuesday afternoon.
