267. Matt has a new scam.

I went to the Go Fund Me website and see that Matthew Dubois has a new Go Fund Me angle.

Team Dominator: Matthew Dubois Rocket Probe Finder

Reed Timmer is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Matthew DuBois.

Team Dominator storm chasing team deployed a rocket with weather sensor into a tornado to capture scientific data. This rocket traveled with a tornado starting in Lawrence, Kansas and then fell out of the tornado 30 miles away from our deployment site where Matthew Dubois found the probe.

As a thank you for Matthew finding our life saving scientific tornado data, we have set up a Go Fund me to help Matthew out, during an unfortunate time in his life. Matthew will soon be having a medical operation done and will be out of work for several weeks without pay. Please help us by helping Matthew during his time of need.

The goal is $5,000. He's raised $3,785.

He told DU people that he isn't working and never has. Now it says, " Matthew will soon be having a medical operation done and will be out of work for several weeks without pay. " I thought Matthew Dubois lived in Pennsylvania. How did he find a rocket that fell thirty miles from Lawrence, Kansas? What's the truth?

I did a search and found 63 Go Fund Me pages that showed Matthew Dubois as the beneficiery.

269. This says something about Go Fund Me.

I was able to go to the Go Fund Me page, clicked on their search button, typed in Matthew Dubois, and 63 entries popped up. This took me all of 15 seconds. This doesn't say much for the people at Go Fund Me. Don't they do anything to check the validity of the stories posted there? It appears the Matthew Dubois has raised many thousands of dollars.

270. I did the same thing, and most of the results weren't for Matthew -

they listed everyone with the same surname. The one with the rocket doesn't even look like the same guy. I agree that this whole business seems sketchy but I really doubt he's behind 63 Gofundme appeals.

Remember lurking Muppets. You can be ANYBODY on the interwebs. ANYBODY...  :lmao:

272. There is a separate Matthew Dubois living in

Leavenworth, Kansas or in that general area. Not the same person at all.

273. You may be right. There may not be 63 Go Fund Me pages for Matthew Dubois.

The 63 pages may not be for Matthew Dubois. The search may have hit on any pages that list "Matthew", "Dubois", or "Matthew Dubois". Perhaps there is more than one Matthew Dubois. If I'm mistaken I apologize. I'm sure someone will take the time to figure this out. I'm done with this.

274. It would be helpful if you deleted this.

Well dang, the fun was short lived. Roxy already deleted the previous posts. Least I grabbed them before they got trashed.

277. The obsession is really off the charts.

Especially by the tag team.

So... this comment, I believe, is referring to Poopy, and XanDUer.

I really believe that Pam is on a mission to derail the fun train. Which I do suppose is what happens. Especially when you see the competition creeping in on your territory. Xanduer, im not sure what the ulterior motive is. And dont care to know.

278. Best train wreck / soap opera / mosh pit in years.

Absolutely. The Muppet Matt has given us so many laughs. So many WTFs. So many "this has got to be the beginning of the end.." But he always seems to bounce back with more enthusiasm then before.

279. I got the social worker over today

She was happy about the food. Concerned about our ability to take care of each other. Like me, worried about mom’s stress level. She is going to do more check ins and see what else is available for us. Even getting to my goal would make a big difference this month.

No matter what you might think of Matt, gotta give him credit for keeping the grift going. Thru the greatest of odds, he always keeps planting the seeds.

Well folks. I think the Matt/MVD Primitive has floundered out. I havent lost all hope though. Im thinking around the Holidays Matt will be  hosting another beg-a-thon. Im sure he wants to get some nice shiny stuff for Christmas. Not to mention something nice for Mom.  :popcorn:

Maybe for normal folks, but not for a pro like MVD :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :-) :-) :-) :-) :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

The boy needs to make a sign and go out and panhandle outside a Walmart or highway exit.
 It can prove to be an exciting new occupation, getting fresh air, sunshine and meeting lots of new people!! :-) :rotf: :rotf:

Is there a wifi connection for Matt to still grift from? Asking for a friend.  :naughty:

So, Matt is still hustling, and a few spectators are trying to ring the village bell..

285. Except there's an unwell woman not getting food in this one, and nothing has

changed that situation in 18 months of GFM threads.

I'm glad to read the report that the social worker has finally entered the picture.

Yeah. But whos fault is that? Clearly the DUmps fault. The more you donate, the better the chances of her getting to eat. Matt has been very clear that the utilities are on the verge of being shut off. You dont want them to go without Electricity and Water. Not to mention, Ribeyes and Taters arent free. So pay the piper, and feel good about yourself for once.

288. But do we have confirmation of anything? At some point some concerned DUer is going to...

….attempt a meeting to deliver aid and comfort in person. They will do this in all sincerity. They should probably take a friend along.

I cannot predict the outcome — but there is a sad history at DU of certain persons taking advantage of the good-heartedness of the community, right up until it all falls apart. One involved attempted delivery of a laptop so the person could communicate with the world more effectively. One involved an attempt to shelter someone’s dear darling doggie for awhile so the owner could get on their feet — an animal that turned out to be huge and vicious. I mean, these were long, long sagas. And the sympathy and donations continued right up until someone attempted to intervene in real life.

Yes, I am concerned. Am I a “concern troll”? No, I am a 20-year member of DU.

All the best to everyone. I mean it.

Well, you win some, you lose some. What can you do? The best thing, just keep donating to Matt. GFM, or email him a Gift Card. No risky meeting needed. No worry of anyone ending up locked inside a human sized cage...  :naughty:

289. No. We don't. But that makes it even less humorous.

Humorous? Whats humorous about our poor Matty? A young boy, on the cusp of manhood. Autistic. Deaf. Myopic. Crippling Back Pain. Arthritic. And dont forget has Sleep Apnea. Taking care of his aging Momma. With only one functioning toilet in the house. AND ITS UPSTAIRS!  :panic: What kinda sick freak are you, Scrivener?

297. Why the goal is important

- temporary transportation to an important doctor’s appointment for my mom Monday and transportation until the 28th

- haven’t made much progress on rides yet. But trying

- Uber and Lyft gift cards are also useful at this time

I want to close this but feel these matters are important.

He never gives up. Never.  :lmao:

314. I'm closing the thread now
Someone so very nicely sent an Uber gift card which solved our main problem. So very grateful for everything.


GFM shut down as well.

313. Keeping this open at least one more day

I thank everyone tremendously for all the help and we still are in need. Mom’s still having a very rough time but I don’t want people to think I am playing on their emotions. It is just true unfortunately.

Posted about 2 hours before shutting everything down.

Talk about projection.  :-)

I have faith. Around the holidays, he will start something up. Or maybe one of his sock puppets will do it.  :popcorn:

306. Hi OS

Yes, no worries about food at least. One of my big donors from the past sent a wonderful gift card to help.

Because you're a parasite. You know you're little communist utopia you dream of? Oh, trust me, they'll get value out of you. .....or they'll disappear you as useless to the collective. Face it, lurking DUmbasses, the ONLY place this lazy piece of shit can exist is in a Capitalist system. Don't even BRING up western Europe to me. They're all capitalist. Even the Scandinavian nations had to come out and say they were free-market capitalists because the clowns in your party kept saying they were an example of how socialism works. Why in the absolute **** would ANYONE WORK if everything was provided? Nope, ole Matt would be in the gulag....right up until the point where he refused. I've seen the world. I'd LOVE to debate one of you clowns one on one. I'll even create a room for the two of us. Others will be able to see, but won't be able to post. Come "at" me, bros.....  :naughty:
NAMBLA is a left-wing organization.

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site
