That's great to hear she is recovering. However when I checked the math, I believe $100 USD is about 1000 Bolivares, not 19.5 billion.

you checked the official rate... only government and people in high places have access to preferencial currency, we do not.. check the real rate here: https://dolartoday.com go to calculadora dolar today and input 100$ and keep in mind the government removed three zeros from the currency to mask s devaluation

Wow..... that inflation and currency rate is far worse than the Vietnamese Dong and the Iranian Rial. When I looked upon the site of you gave me, currently $100 USD = 22.5+ billion Bolivares!

Yes, the inflation is awful.  But Francys, what other sites have you been asking for help?  I hope Mary isn't relying on solely us.

Hi. I have come to deliver news... after the big fight my dear Maria made with her illness I am sad to say she did not make it. Today at 3:45 pm she took her last breath on this earth; she had begun chemotherapy and complications lead to a respiratory failure 3 days ago, she was sent to ICU and she could not wake, she never woke up.

 

She could not make her dreams come true or leave the country to make a better living for herself.. she leaves no children behind, only those of us who love her and will love her forever.

 

This is a terrible moment for her family and friends and I am ashamed to say we do not have funds to give her a proper burial.. I hope this does not make the administrators or users disgusted but if someone wishes to help you may send any amount you can to the accounts at the beginning. We will find a way to make it up to you.

This is very sad news. We never knew MaryJo had a condition she was unable to pay for in time. Had she had the money earlier, she would have gotten through. Thank you Francys for telling us. May she rest in peace.

This whole thread was a lie.

 

Everything posted here was copied from this other website, which had the posts up for two months prior, where the details are similar, but different:

 

http://www.pandamoni...-gtfo-venezuela

 

Donation emails are the same, but it's a guy instead of a girl, and there's no mention of medical issue, they just wanted travel money for a new job.

 

You've all been scammed.

We did look into it already, but whether or not Mary's story was genuine, or if there was any identity falsifying, we're still dealing with someone who is in Venezuela.  General IP skulduggery verified that.  The state of the country is so dire, any money we did give was likely going to someone who needed it more than us.  I would hardly classify that as a scam.  I am puzzled that there was exact copy/paste work going on here, but in case we're overlooking anything, we will still be respectful to Mary.  Thanks for showing us what you've found, but that won't change how this subject is handled here.

Right, lying about having cancer and faking your death and still having someone ask for money is hardly a scam.

 

Well, I did what I could, showing you the proof.  Sorry you apparently fell for it.

MaryJo was a long time member here and hostee, with MaryJo's Rules and Terra War (you can view it in the network bar at the top of this site: C&C -> Archive Modifications -> TA / RA2 / YR -> Bizarre Mind Studios). We do have several evidences in our forums and server that she really lived in Venezuela. And the situation there is really like hell nowadays, specially in economical terms. I don't know how did she handle the amazon gift card donations, but the paypal ones were really going to her account, since the email that she posted in this topic is legitimate hers, since she used it in the forums and other hosting matters here. We do not have proofs that she really did had cancer or die, however, we had enough proof here that she really needed money to escape from hell and some people here did care about her before she asks for financial help.

Update to hiimbill: The similarity of the link you posted and MaryJo's GTFO campaign to leave Venezuela happens because MaryJo has actually helped his campaign to leave Venezuela before trying to escape from there on her own. She has created a topic asking us to help her friend at: https://forums.revor...art-a-new-life/

 

If you visit the first link on her post and pay attention to the avatar of the person who they were trying to help escaping from Venezuela, you'll notice that it has the same avatar from the person asking for help in the link you have posted. Note that the topic, in the link you've posted, was started an year later, when they already had some donations.

Yea, if the person in question from the Pandamonium forums actually is Ysmel Garcia, then it wouldn't be strange that Mary's message was the same as his.  They were both close friends and they were both in the same living situations, so it wouldn't be unusual that they coordinated efforts closely in an effort to escape.  Again, thanks for stopping by with this info Hiimbill, but how about you show some respect and privately contact the administrators before you publicly denounce the dead next time.

I spoke with Mary a few years ago when she was helping Ysmel relocate, and she showed me a few images of him that I could add to the FaceBook post promoting his story.  I ended up using that one, which is them at the hospital Mary worked at I believe she said.  It's the same man from that Pandamonium forums.  I may try contacting him here soon.

I wonder how Hiimbill knew about this, and he's just a new member of this forum, but I don't think he is that guy (or another member) from the Pandamonium forums. FreeHealzForYou (Ysmel Garcia) was last seen in March 11 of this year from that forum and I wonder if he's ever going to come back active again.

 

I doubt we are being scammed, but this is beginning to look like a mystery and proof is needed.
