Can you help me raise funds to register for the NJ Marathon in the name of the Boston Marathon bombing victims? (Read 223 times)

    probable scam

      you want us to pay for your entry into the NJ marathon ($140) and then you will donate 'whatever you can afford' after you finish.

       

      Am I reading that right?

        "Forgive me for this shameless plug ..."

         

        No.  I won't forgive you for having no shame.  Amazing that you would even start off with that line.  You should probably concentrate on paying down your crippling student loan debt before you worry about entering the NJ marathon.

          Seems like a lot of these are popping up.  Obviously scammers.  Very shameful.

          HTFU?  Why not!

            freakin scammers.

            sub 1:30 half

            3:20 marathon on second try

              Instead of donating money, I'll donate advice:

               

              You will get further in life, and garner far more respect, if you seek to help others in ways that do not directly benefit you first.

Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                    Yep.  Taking advantage of a tragedy, whether by individuals or organizations is not cool.

                    Vultures all.

                      I let Eric know. This and the other spam post will be nuked shortly.

                        There is a difference between being a scammer and being insensitive (and doing something silly).

                         

                        I don't see this as a scam. If it is, it is the dumbest scam ever.

                         

                        Having said that.... uh, no. Nice try.

                            I've decided to go on a cruise in honor of the Boston Marathon bombing victims.  Please donate to help me pay for it.

                                This GoFundMe site is rather entertaining.  It has things like people wanting to raise funds so they can buy a new car. go on trips, all sorts of stuff.
