Save My Mum Who Was Scammed

My mum is the victim of an online scam that has taken everything. She is a retired nurse. She is single and lives by herself. She has raised us, three boys, all by herself. She has lost all her savings, superannuation, and has 20K in credit card debt. All up she has lost over $70,000.


Over two months she was scammed by criminals overseas, so there is no chance of the money being returned. The criminals were experts and targeted my mother's good nature and generosity. She believed her money was being invested and would help provide for her family. She has committed her life to putting others first and it was taken advantage of.

My mum has a heart of gold as you can imagine, she has been left shattered, heart-broken, and embarrassed by these cold-blooded thieves. We don't want the criminals to win. We don't want our mother to lose hope in the world. Please donate whatever you can. Everything helps.
