GiveSendGo hacked and taken offline, Freedom Convoy threatened with a Hateful Manifesto

After raising more than $9 million for the Freedom Movement and having their funds frozen and even seized by private banks, the Christian community sourcing platform GiveSendGo hacked and taken offline.

The news was originally reported by Human Events editor Jack Posobiec.

Hackers leaked the personal information of people who donated to the Freedom Convoy.

The website has been hacked and a video has been put in its place with a hate message for those standing up for their rights.

The hackers have also published a full bulletin against “scammers and helmets”. There are also reports that they are disclosing donors’ personal information.

GiveSendGo reportedly fixed the redirect issue.

On Tuesday, GiveSendGo was hit by a massive DDOS attack that momentarily locked the server.

“GoFundMe rival GiveSendGo announced it was the victim of ‘DDoS and bot attacks’ on Friday, which resulted in server outages as soon as the site started raising cash for the Canadian truck fleet, “HackRead” report. “According to the website, despite technical glitches, the Christian fundraising platform raised more than $1.35 million within 12 hours.”

GiveSendGo said at the time: “We’ve been under heavy DDOS and bot attacks. “Despite all this, we still managed to raise funds 5 times faster than gfm did. GFM raised 10 million in 3 weeks. GSG campaign raised over 1.1 million in just over 12 hours! ”

This is not the first time GiveSendGo has been “hacked”. It was also attacked for fundraising for Kyle Rittenhouse’s legal defense.

Heather Wilson and Jacob Wells, the co-founders of GiveSendGo, created a announced in April confirmed that their site was hacked:

“This is not a database breach as it should be, just a frontend attack in which hackers can collect the email addresses of donors. We’ve since found and resolved the issue and are scanning the site with external security auditors to make sure this doesn’t happen again. Aside from emails and names, no financial information is collected by GiveSendGo from donors so there is never any risk of donors’ credit card information being compromised.”

15MB of personal information was destroyed in the previous hack.

“Sponsor information for every campaign on ‘Christian fundraising platform’ GiveSendGo… The dataset is broken down by campaign and includes name, donation amount, comments, and email address,” an attack site Note. “While ‘anonymous’ donations do not include names, they do include the donor’s email address.”

GiveSendGo recently responded to reports that its funds have been “frozen”.

“Let’s get this out of there: Funds from Freedom Convoy are not frozen contrary to what you may hear in the news,” the community sourcing platform said on Twitter. “GiveSendGo is working with various campaign organizers to find the most effective legitimate ways to continue cash flow.”

However, there is a case where the Canadian government banned sending money to truckers. The company had previously hit back at the Canadian government for its actions.

“I know it! Canada has absolutely NO jurisdiction over how we manage our funds at GiveSendGo,” the company wrote. “All funds for EVERY campaign on GiveSendGo will go directly to the recipients of those campaigns, most notably The Freedom Convoy campaign.”

GiveSendGo also recently mocked the Canadian government for the move.

GiveSendGo, based in Delaware, is not under Canadian jurisdiction. However, the company is responding to a court order that aims to freeze access to funding the Freedom Motor Movement.

“The Ontario Superior Court of Justice has approved a request from the provincial government to freeze access to millions of dollars in donations raised through the online fundraising platform GiveSendWalk into a convoy of trucks protesting COVID-19 restrictions in Ottawa and at some border crossings,” CBC report on Thursday.

The Premier for Canada’s most populous province, Doug Ford, has issued the following statement statement:

“Today, the Attorney General applied to the Superior Court of Justice for an order pursuant to section 490.8 of the Penal Code that prohibits any person from handling or handling, in any way, any and all monetary donations are made through Freedom Convoy 2022 and the Adopt-a-Trucker campaign pages on the online fundraising platform GiveSend Go. ”

“This afternoon, the order was issued,” the prime minister said. “It binds any and all parties that own or control these contributions.”

The GiveSendGo campaign for Freedom Convoy 2022 has just ended 8.4 million dollars.

GoFundMe has raised more than $10 million in funds for the 2022 Freedom Convoy to fund Canadian truckers who stand up for human rights. The left-wing community service platform claims that “peaceful protest has become a profession” now.

The Ottawa Police Department took responsibility for ordering GoFundMe to shut it down.

GoFundMe claims that it is allowing refunds or allowing money to be sent to “trusted charities”. This platform has a message for everyone.”Send require“To get their donations back.

The state attorney generals are now investigate community sourcing platform GoFundMe for allegedly fraudulently claiming Freedom Convoy 2022 fundraisers violated its Terms of Service. They may need more human rights complaints against Canadian provincial governments for blocking peaceful protesters from exercising their rights.

Jacob Wells, founder and CEO of GiveSendGo, criticized GoFundMe and Big Tech for the “authoritarian style of social platforms”.

“Big Tech has really established itself as the arbiter of truth. And that’s where they were never meant to be, and it does more damage than good,” Wells said. Fox News Digital. “We’re entering that place now because there are a lot of natural supporters because America was founded on these liberal ideas.”

“This is like the tip of a spear and what is coming in a technological tsunami is pushing back this authoritarian style of social platforms, where these people only think they can,” he said. can control the story”. “I find it amazing that they actually think that’s the way it should be, because in my view it just creates more mistrust and more important, more divisive factors. than.”

On Friday, TD Bank told CTV News it will “apply with an Ontario court for an amount that has not been refunded by GoFundMe, totaling approximately $1 million, as well as approximately $400,000 that the team has accepted.” through direct donations.”

“TD has asked the court to accept the funds raised through crowdfunding and deposit it into a personal account at TD, so that they can be managed and distributed according to the intentions of the sponsors and / or be returned to the sponsor. requested a refund but TD was unable to determine whose right to a refund,” said spokeswoman Carla Hindman.

Keith Wilson, chief lawyer for the Freedom Convoy movement, said that the group “plans to fight to get back any money they’ve raised,” CTV reported. The Freedom Convoy teams are currently moving into a crypto fundraiser that has raised nearly $1 million.

“We will take expeditious legal steps to lift restrictions on donations as soon as possible,” Wilson said in an email to CTV News.

Freedom Convoy organizers are now transitioning to Satoshi-based crypto fundraising.

HonkHonkHodl are helping to drive fundraising. It has raised over a million dollars.

“In a video posted on Facebook by supporters, the convoy organizers discuss an online fundraising strategy, turning to a crypto crowdfunding site called Satoshis – approx. $913,000 as of Friday afternoon,” CTV reported.

One said: “The principle philosophy of Bitcoin is freedom. “For all those who have had their voices stolen by ‘GoFraudMe’, ‘GoFundMe’, you should take some comfort that there are now alternatives.”

This is the next evolution of the Freedom vs. Big banks and big governments banded together to violate human rights and impose authoritarian regimes. People need to organize against this threat to their rights, and cryptocurrencies are now an increasingly important part of the liberal movement.
