How many folk have been conned into giving the fraudster money?

I have read of so many, who did do in good faith which he has apparently pocketed and won’t be returning. Some gave very large amounts. Most are demanding th3 money be repaid.

I do hope that Farage is taken to court before he hide tails it to the USA.

Wasn't there someone on GN who boasted about giving £50k to Farage's company? Who was that and has she posted lately?

Firecracker123 Thu 14-Nov-19 15:27:51

Well it wasn't me lol and really to you honestly believe all that's posted on here I certainly don't.

It Was Gabriella G and she has left Gransnet in a huff.

£50k??!! Good grief!

growstuff Thu 14-Nov-19 15:45:06

Ah well! There's no fool like a Brexit fool!

petra Thu 14-Nov-19 15:49:29

She only said that to throw 'some' remainers some fresh meat ? At the time she thought you looked a bit hungry ?

Whitewavemark2 Thu 14-Nov-19 15:59:42

petra you mean she lied? What on Earth was the point of that.

Although, I’m not convinced that she lied, I think she may have inflated her donation, but she was still fooled by a con man.

suziewoozie Thu 14-Nov-19 16:02:15

Well if that’s true petra and you seem sure of your facts, it’s good riddance to her isn’t it? Pathetic

Good post Firecracker ??
Did anyone believe a claim that £50k had been given? What a trusting lot some of you are.

lemongrove Thu 14-Nov-19 16:07:21

WWM2......she was ‘aving a larf’ with you all.wink

suziewoozie Thu 14-Nov-19 16:12:10

Better to be trusting than think deliberately winding people with lies is acceptable behaviour.

Firecracker123 Thu 14-Nov-19 16:12:11

That's just your opinion because you don't like him and everything the Brexit Party stands for re leaving the EU and you want to remain shackled to Brussels. I think Corbyn's a conman and a dangerous man and Diane Abbotts an idiot and not fit to be an MP.

suziewoozie Thu 14-Nov-19 16:13:39

It’s not worth the bother of responding is it?

Firecracker123 Thu 14-Nov-19 16:16:08

We've all just got one vote we will just have to wait and see if common sense prevails and Boris gets a majority and The Brexit Party finally get some MPs.

Whitewavemark2 Thu 14-Nov-19 16:26:53

lemon and the point was?

crystaltipps Thu 14-Nov-19 17:35:53

Someone lying about their political donations? Why would anyone do it? I think this is the same person who boasts about her Primark purchases. Strange that everyone else knows it was a lie- I wonder how? Maybe it’s the same as the red bus lie which “no one believed” ( although I do know someone who believed this, a Brexit voter no longer ).

suziewoozie Thu 14-Nov-19 17:42:21

Apparently crystal those in the know say she did it to have a larf and wind people up. These observations if true do much to explain so much of the value Gabbies contributikns.

Whitewavemark2 Thu 14-Nov-19 17:55:42

I think she comes over as a sad character tbh.

She is more to be pitied than criticised.

Quite extraordinary.

varian Thu 14-Nov-19 17:58:36

Firecracker are you trying to tell us all that the brexiters on GN do not always tell us the truth?

crystaltipps Thu 14-Nov-19 18:13:41

What else do they lie about?

Firecracker123 Thu 14-Nov-19 18:15:32

I'm saying use some common sense. Lots of fake news and fake people on the Internet. Sometimes it hard to tell if people are genuine or not don't believe everything people post as kosher.

MamaCaz Thu 14-Nov-19 18:51:37

For someone who was lying and deliberately winding people up, Gabriella didn't half go off in a huff. Quite the drama queen!
Still, if it's true, she clearly likes acting, she might have several 'personas', and still be on here!

And now this! Farage has apparently threatened last night to report the Conservatives to the police, after accusing Downing Street of offering Brexit Party candidates jobs and peerages to withdraw from the general election.
The Brexit Party leader claimed the Tories were guilty of “corruption of the worst level” as he alleged they had offered eight peerages as incentives in what he likened to “living in Venezuela”.

MawB Fri 15-Nov-19 10:32:39

Chestnut, Firecracker and others , you have reminded me of “somebody’s” inflated/ boasting or just fantasist 5 figure donation to the Brexit party.
So that’s down the ??

lemongrove Fri 15-Nov-19 10:33:00

I honestly think that Farage has finally cracked!It has been coming for a long time!
