GoFundMe Fraud

[UPDATED] Let’s Start a GoFundMe to Buy GoFundMe a F*ck to Give About This Creep Abusing Their Platform

This post is a long time coming, so bear with me as it may take a minute to get it all together. I’m actually going to be brief here because for as much as there is to say, only a small part of it needs to be said.

Meet Fredrick-Jay H. Hibbard. AKA Fredrick-Jay Harder Hibbard, and many bastardizations of that. He is, from what we can gather, a lifetime mooch who abuses and uses everyone around him until there’s nothing left. The first phony GoFundMe campaign he made to “attack” us (we use the term “attack” loosely as he’s bed-bound by his own admission and unable to do much attacking unless you consider endless Facebook messages to be an attack) was put up on January 31:

Now, that campaign has since been removed but he put up another, which was also removed.

In each campaign, he named a list of GoFraudMe readers and clearly put these campaigns up for the sole purpose of harassing said people. GoFundMe appears to be totally OK with this, in fact they are letting him do it on another campaign that purports to raise $10 million for veterans he may or may not know which is still live.

GoFundMe is a joke

Although the campaign has been reported to GoFundMe repeatedly and is obviously ridiculous in its intent, GoFundMe left it up and hasn’t banned him. So cool, I guess GoFundMe just lets people get shitty on their platform for absolutely no reason and call out people they are mad at and that’s cool. Good to know.

From GoFundMe’s own terms and conditions, it clearly says:

Further, if any person (other than you) appears in your User Content, you represent and warrant that you have secured all necessary licenses, waivers and releases from such person(s) for the benefit of GoFundMe in a manner fully consistent with the licenses, waivers and releases set forth above.

Fredrick has no such license nor waiver to include people in his deluded campaigns, which have been reported to GoFundMe ad nauseam, and yet here he is doing it AGAIN. And again. And again. Just how many times does it take to get his campaigns nuked to be banned from GoFundMe? It’s like the Tootsie Pop Owl, no one knows.

It seems Fredrick has a history of harassing people online. He is accused of stealing photos of children in his LDS parish and posting them for absolutely no reason other than wanting to be a total creep. When asked to take the photos down, he said that they were public domain and he had every right to put up pictures of children. Mind you, this is coming from a man who claims his own mentally-retarded daughter raped him just so she could have his child.

And this creep stalked my own FB profile and stole my — may I say — beautiful picture of downtown Richmond for his joke of a page Gofactme. YEAH THAT IS NOT CREEPY AT FUCKING ALL. Dude. Then again, he’s supposedly bed-bound and crapping in his diapers in Texas so everyone knows he didn’t take that picture of the oh-so-stunning Richmond skyline.

[Ed. note: this photo was later removed from Facebook via copyright claim, so suck it, Freddy]

So. This leaves us with the many, many GoFundMe campaigns this guy has run and is running. Check his Twitter and there are how many more?

Despite receiving countless reports about his latest scam, GoFundMe has chosen to leave the campaign up, letting him make a mockery of the military and, even, as much as it pains us to say this because GoFundMe is a joke, GoFundMe itself.

Let’s talk about that “Fund 4 Local Veterans & Families” campaign. Freddy has a history of stealing photos and appropriating people for his own purposes. So we are supposed to believe his intent is benevolent here? LMAO. It has been reported to GoFundMe over and over and over, he even sent back his responses to one inquiry from GoFundMe in an update:

1. Who you are
Fredrick-Jay & Phyllis-Elsie
2. Where you’re from
San Angelo, Texas
3. Your relationship to the parties you’re raising funds for
Local Veterans
4. How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)
Curently our 2nd pick is Brenda Bonners Home rescue!
5. How you intend to get the funds to those in need
By hiring ppl in construction.

Did GoFundMe ask Brenda Bonner if she wants to be a part of this maniac’s GoFundMe scams? Guessing not, since they left it up and don’t seem to give a crap that he’s all over their platform harassing people and trying — unsuccessfully at that — to scam money out of people.

I remind GoFundMe once again of their own statement in their own terms and conditions:

Further, if any person (other than you) appears in your User Content, you represent and warrant that you have secured all necessary licenses, waivers and releases from such person(s) for the benefit of GoFundMe in a manner fully consistent with the licenses, waivers and releases set forth above.

And I ask again, did y’all check with Brenda since this known creep threw her name into the mix? I’m guessing not.

In yet another campaign which is still totally live on GoFundMe despite countless reports, he openly admits to committing Social Security fraud:

Social Security fraud GoFundMe

LOL. That’s still up, too.

HELLO, GoFundMe. You keep letting this clown make campaigns. You also let him harass people using campaigns he’s made. So what is the breaking point that causes you to block him for good?

Or just keep letting this creepazoid put up joke GoFundMes attacking GoFraudMe readers. It’s up to y’all. Your position seems clear from here for now.

Update: At long last, it seems GoFundMe heard our pleas and removed not only his fraudulent campaigns, but his seemingly legitimate ones as a punishment for abusing their platform. But not before he put up several others.

In one, he purported to be raising money — $30 million, actually — for “Veterans and their families in the Sub-division “Lake View” of San Angelo, Texas 76903.” He meant, of course, himself.

Quite possibly one of the most egregious scampaigns was the one he put up under an alias of Ariel Shae Harper, based on the identity of a teen girl totally unrelated to him. In it, he pretended to be the girl and asked for $88k to fix the Hibbard-Harder home.

Mr Harder then proceeded to spam our Facebook page using the stolen identity.

And then, as if all this weren’t enough, he also put up a page supposedly raising money for the Bishop Street Bootcamp Ranch ministry in San Angelo. He even made a fake donation of $100 using his wife’s Facebook account. When brought to the attention of the ministry, it was quickly removed.

The other day, GoFundMe wiped out all of his pages, which is a step in the right direction. But that didn’t stop him from putting up another GoFundMe campaign in his wife’s name.

Now he’s claiming to be a quintuplet. Oookay. It, too, was removed after a Gofraudme reader directly alerted someone at GoFundMe who she has been in contact with about this guy.

Meanwhile, he continues to stalk me. I got this yesterday on the Gofraudme Facebook page. You love me, dontcha Freddy? Can’t blame you.

Fredrick-Jay Hibbard

According to our original tipster, Fredrick-Jay continues reaching out to her family  members (with whom he shares a single last name) claiming to be their long lost cousin or whomever, spamming them with fundraising links. Running out of puppet Facebook pages to use, he still has multiple profiles for both himself and his wife: Elsie Harder, Harder Phyllis, Phyllis-Elsie Hibbard Morgan Harder.

As far as we know, his hovel still goes up for auction on March 7.



  1. Would you really post our whole unedited rebuttal?

      Stalk Much? You apparently are just as creepy as the article makes you out to be.

  2. Tired of abusers

    OMG! I’m so glad I found this site today.

    Look Captain HamPlanet you’re horrible for scamming the system. Separating from your wife so you can get twice the benefits goes to show you what too much cholesterol does to your brain. I’m a disabled veteran as well, and I’m not scamming the system to get an extra dose of Twinkies.

    Roll your hamfisted self out of the bed and go outside and enjoy nature. Tell your live in crime partner that she needs to get off of the bacon glider and start using her legs too. After that roll yourselves up to the unemployment office and take the first damn job you qualify for. When you’re working your new job remember to keep your sausage knuckle mitts out of the freshly made fries! Those are for customers only!

    Panhandling becoming problem in city
    Frank Carter, Special to the Standard-Times Published 6:12 p.m.
    I write this with hope that it brings awareness and insight to two growing problems in our community.

    The most obvious is the growing number of panhandlers visible at high-traffic areas. The other is the growing population of homeless people living throughout our community.

    Your city government, local nonprofit agencies and other organizations with the resources to assist those in these situations want to help as much as possible. At the same time, we must also understand that many who are homeless do not want help.

    “Panhandlers can earn as much as $200 to $400 a day. This lures transients to San Angelo from other communities, hence the recent boom of them.”
    Frank Carter, Chief of Police, San Angelo Police Department

    Recently, we have formed a working group that includes the Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition, the Salvation Army, MHMR, City Council members, city staff, other organizations and me to provide assistance and services to those truly in need and who want assistance.

    San Angelo has a heart for helping, and that manifests itself in generous giving. Recently, however, that spirit of giving has worked against us in addressing the influx of panhandlers.

    The more we give, the more panhandlers we have. Giving cash to panhandlers also spawns a whole other problem: It complicates efforts to help those homeless folks who are working to make their lives better; those homeless people working toward self-sufficiency could be lured instead into panhandling.

    In some instances, panhandling is an organized enterprise. It can be connected to substance abuse and, often, other forms of criminal activity. Even gifts — food, clothing, gift cards — handed to panhandlers are sometimes exchanged for contraband or used to lure someone into a criminal act.

    Engaging with panhandlers encourages a blight that detracts from San Angelo’s aesthetics. More importantly, encounters with aggressive panhandlers can turn dangerous.

    Panhandlers can earn as much as $200 to $400 a day. This lures transients to San Angelo from other communities, hence the recent boom of them. Many would rather stand and accept money from passing cars rather than seek gainful employment.

    So how can San Angelo best help?

    A safety net for the homeless already exists here. It’s simply a matter of helping the agencies that help the homeless. If you’re moved to help, I urge you to make your donations or give of your time to local agencies whose mission it is to help the homeless, most notable, the Salvation Army.

    Last year the Salvation Army served 10,000 people, feeding and sheltering them. In addition, the Salvation Army offers long-term case management. That is, it connects clients with other agencies that can assist on a host of issues ranging from health and wellness to education and employment.

    As Maj. Tim Grider of the local Salvation Army says, “Make us work.”

    The Salvation Army is a major player in the Concho Valley Homeless Planning Coalition, a network of local service providers that help the homeless. Those groups recently worked together on a “point in time” survey — a census of San Angelo’s homeless population. That information is entered into a Homeless Management Information System that tracks individuals’ progress and ensures services to them are not needlessly duplicated.

    In the meantime, our city government is considering how we might legally address panhandling without violating people’s constitutional rights. The city attorney’s office is researching and seeking solutions. We also are exploring options regarding changes or additions can be made to city ordinances in reference to overnight camping.

    Recently, a small encampment of tents popped up under the Houston Harte Expressway overpass at Bryant Boulevard. That generated a lot of calls to the San Angelo Police Department, the mayor and City Council members.

    These tent dwellers are the same people who were camping on top of the 7th Street bridge near McDonald’s. Because the property they are camping on belongs to the Texas Department of Transportation, the SAPD lacks the authority to formally address the situation at this time.

    However, I have built a relationship with those who are staying in tent city and we continuously monitor them and their activities.

    Help spread the word!
