There are numerous ways to make money online; however, faking a son’s death is not one of those ways. A woman from Reno, Nevada started up a GoFund me account, claiming it was for her son’s funeral who had recently died from leukemia.
This story is also a reminder that the world is not full of honest people. It is best to do your research before forking over any money. As for the idea of making money, the mother has been arrested, will be dealing with going to court, may serve some jail time and her children were handed over to child protective services. The risk is not worth it.
