“GoFundMe has zero tolerance for the misuse of our platform and cooperates with law enforcement investigations and those accused of wrongdoing,” the spokesperson said. “Our trust and safety team takes swift action against those who exploit the generosity of our community, including with the outright removal of a fundraiser, banning an account for violating our terms of service, and even pursuing potential legal recourse.”
GoFundMe further added during a press conference Thursday that at the prudence of its team, they perpetually banned Santana from the platform and all future beneficiary prospects.
It is unknown whether the company will pursue legal action for the money she pocketed.
The link to the campaign is now broken and cannot “be found.”
Santana has “also been accused of severe abuse by community activists like Quanell X, who relayed his concerns to detectives on Wednesday,” according to the report. “Farias made no mention of abuse, sexual or otherwise, during his interview with a staff sergeant.”
