Yet Another Gaza Charity Scam

A Gazan “social activist” with 4.6K followers on Facebook yesterday shared a link (twice) to a donation campaign supposedly to help feed starving Gazans.

Leaving aside the increasing obesity rates in Gaza, there are poor people there, no doubt. But this campaign is not going to help them.

That’s because it is almost certainly yet another Gaza scam.

How do I know? This is what part of the campaign page looked like:

They pilfered that photo from the website of OpenDoors, a Christian org in South Korea:

After reader Michal reported this scam to Ko-fi, they removed the campaign page. But screenshots are forever.

As usual, I have to wonder whether this is the work of an opportunistic scammer looking to make a quick buck, or someone actually associated with Hamas looking to raise funds for more terror activities.
