Reporting Fraud - What to do when you think a fundraiser is fraudulent

GoFundMe is dedicated to empowering people to help others and we strive to keep our platform safe and legitimate. In the unlikely event that someone creates a fundraiser with the intention to mislead donors, our team takes swift action.

Among other things, we rely on community reports for information. In most instances, we will not share any information reported to us with the organiser or beneficiary. Your help in keeping our platform safe is greatly appreciated.

If you are not a donor or a beneficiary, but are concerned about a fundraiser, click here to report a fundraiser.

If you are (1) a donor who feels misled by a fundraiser or (2) a beneficiary who is owed some or all of a fundraiser’s donations, please click here to file a claim under the GoFundMe Guarantee. Terms and Conditions apply.

If you need assistance with your GoFundMe account, please visit our help centre.

GoFundMe cooperates with law enforcement and provides them with any information needed in an investigation. If you are a member of law enforcement and want to contact our team, please visit our Legal Contact Info page.
