How GoFundMe protects donors from fraudulent campaigns
GoFundMe is dedicated to empowering people to help people and we do this by carefully reviewing each campaign on our platform. An overwhelming majority of campaigns on the site are safe and legitimate, as fraudulent campaigns make up less than one-tenth of 1% of all campaigns on GoFundMe.
In the rare instance that someone does create a misleading campaign with the intention of taking advantage of others’ generosity, GoFundMe takes swift action to resolve the issue.
Our policy is simple and strictly enforced: it is not permitted to lie or intentionally deceive donors on GoFundMe for financial or personal gain.
