    This is standard gofundme policy….if it’s flag that the purpose for collection has changed then they issue a refund. That is why the money is kept and not released until its established

    The family or who started the fund has no say in it…. it in their terms and conditions

    Yeah the likes of Toyin Abraham have woe stories to tell, so they are doing it to tell the world that they have no fraudulent intentions. God bless and sustain the family, and also protect them from “woe story tellers.” RIP Mayowa.

      Who told you the refund was triggered by the family…..its gofundme policy. They do return in case like this whether the family or who opened the gofundme likes it or not

      Which family???…..

      Go fund me handled it themselves . They have policies to protect their integrity. Since the purpose of donating the money is no longer existing, they need to refund. They have no right to channel it to something else.

    So many bogus gofundme are opened so now the money is held and refunded if needed. ..based on this i would say the investigation showed it really was a scam hence money is returned back

    I also got a refund notice and felt a lil sad about it. I think most people gave from the heart and so didn’t expect any money back but ooh well!

    This is suprising and remarkable. So we still have People in this Nation, who are honest and possess integrity.

      Sorry, that’s not the case. Gofundme is behind it. And if I recall correctly, it’s not a nigerian organization.
