Fake $1 million Fundraising Campaign For Amber Heard Shut Down
GoFundMe, an American for-profit crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events and personalities has shut down a fake $1 million campaign that was set up in favor of Amber Heard shortly after she lost the defamation lawsuit against her former husband and celebrty actor, Johnny Depp.
The descriptio on the fake page read:
“I believe in Amber, and social networks protected the abuser. The judgment exceeds his net worth. It’s very sad that he was able to get away with abuse. The lawsuit encourages that abuse. If you can, help her.”
According to TMZ, the creation of the page was in the name of a certain Kimberley Moore who claimed that she had contacted Amber Heard’s legal team and would allow the performer to withdraw the money if she needed it.
However, a spokesperson for the company claims that it contacted the actress’ lawyers and they were unaware of the creation of the campaign in question.
Shortly after hutting down the page, the platform warned that warned it will continue to work on shutting down other fake pages that try to take advantage of this recent situation.
