My spouse started a gofund me for a house fire and kept the money for himself: Advice?

My s/o recently up and left his family of 20yrs this past July. He has all of his belongings and has been out of the house for around 2.5 months. No explanation was just gone. Fast forward to sept. My daughter and I lost our home to fire…everything we had ruined… My daughter’s father started a go fund me thru his organization and raised a good amount to get us back on our feet…well, once the money came he took half stating since it was his “hook up,” he was entitled. My daughter and I are left to figure out how to pick up the pieces while he runs off with the funds…he lost nothing…We lost it all… My question is …is he entitled to the money raised to help me and my daughter rebuild …just because he started it?

You could attempt to take him to court. GoFund me has a policy that ensures money goes where it was promised. You should look more into it here: https://charitysupport.gofundme.com/hc/en-us/articles/360035582691-Reporting-fraud

There is a link to report that you’re the beneficiary of a fundraiser, and the organizer hasn’t delivered the money to you.

He is not entitled to any of the money. Report him.

I would put him on blast. He basically took his daughters money cause it should go toward getting a roof over her head, new clothing and food.

Contact go fund me and let them know. Also post a comment on the page so people stop contributing.

The fact that you’re second guessing if it’s ok, makes me sad. This is fraud.
