I'm wondering if they're refunding it because they removed to wording from the page or if GoFundMe just decided it's better to do it anyway.

If it's because they removed the wording.. lol.

And on what land will this be built, exactly?
The best land. Amazing, beautiful land. Everybody's talking about it. I spoke to the...the former presidents called me...I talked to them and they said Mr. Gofundme, it's the biggest, best land. You won't believe it.

I thought the money was going to the government and not to him?
If it goes to the government it’s in the form of a donation to the Treasury which just goes into a general fund. So it would have just been used to pay for random shit. This was known to anyone who isn’t an idiot before the whole thing started and I’m sure that includes Kolfage. In the gofundme he said they were trying to secure a contact in the administration to hand the money off to. What that person would do was never explained but either way that’s not a thing. This entire thing was so fucking absurd from the beginning.

Jaw-dropping story. And stay for the kicker: at one point, Kolfage (the man crowdsourcing border wall funds) even pretended to be Trump in emails, per @oneunderscore__ @BrandyZadrozny.

Behind the viral #GoFundTheWall fundraiser, a shadowy email harvesting operationhttps://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/behind-viral-gofundthewall-fundraiser-rising-conservative-star-shadowy-email-harvesting-n957896

The man behind the #GoFundTheWall fundraiser has a long history of "petitions" for causes tied to several GoFundMes and fake news sites hidden behind shell companies and false identities.

Growing the email list is the endgame, leaked texts reveal.https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-n...rvative-star-shadowy-email-harvesting-n957896

While GoFundMe is refunding #GoFundTheWall funds, Brian Kolfage also collected cash that was mailed directly to him.

GoFundMe told @BrandyZadrozny it can't refund that money, and it's unclear what will happen to it.https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-n...rvative-star-shadowy-email-harvesting-n957896

When Americans see us completing real miles of beautiful wall, we know that we will raise the many billions we need to finally secure the entire border.

This is the same kind of shit you see on Kickstarters raising money for bootleg Mario games.

GoFundMe should donate the full $20 million to the Clinton Foundation, where it would do far more good than sitting in the bank accounts of racist bozos.

Is it bad if I want him to scam people? Nothing would make me happier than a bunch of hateful idiots losing their money. Double points if they expected to recuperate their money back with their tax refund that will be delayed because of the shutdown.
That's how I feel too. I'm sad they're getting their money back.

Obvious this would be the outcome. The only shame is that many people will get their money back, when they deserved to lose it and be publicly humiliated for falling for such an obvious rip off.
