Over the past week or so, we’ve received multiple allegations of Angela Power-Disney’s dodgy money-raising schemes. In particular, her ‘Kenya Project‘ has come under a great deal of scrutiny: no matter how she tries to twist them, the numbers just don’t add up.
Angie has put together a video proclaiming that she’s as pure as the driven snow; our friends at McKenzies Devils have taken the liberty of examining her claims in greater detail, and are quite correctly demanding that she produce documentation, rather than further lies and protestations of innocence.
In particular, we were interested in Angie’s description of a conversation she’d had with someone on Facebook (starting at 00:02:08 on this video):
A lady just messaged me and said, “Is there any truth in the gossip flying around about you being a charity scammer?”
And I said, “No, absolutely not, and this is why it’s happening, I’m working to expose child abuse, a ritual paedophile ring in Hampstead, and this is one of the tactics used to throw people off”.
And so she said that she did her research, and she was so relieved, and she just said, “How can I help?”
And I just said to her that is so…that is all people need to do. If you hear gossip…go to the person being gossiped about. Don’t be afraid, just say “I heard this story”…and it was just lovely.
That’s Angie’s recollection of the conversation. As it happens, the woman in question knows someone who comments regularly on this blog.
According to the screenshots she saved, her conversation with Angie went a bit differently than originally reported:
Okay, fair enough so far. But then ‘Karen Johnson’ asks for further information on how to donate to David.
David Shurter? Who said anything about him?
But never mind, Angie is never backward about coming forward, and suggests that ‘Karen Johnson’ donate to her JOURNOANGIE GoFundMe page. Or failing that, she could donate to Q*Bert….
Um…we were talking about charities, correct? Actual charities, where people donate money to help those who are less fortunate than themselves? You know, like that school and orphanage in Kenya to which Angie claims to be so passionately dedicated?
Ohhhh…that charity. Well, if you choose not to believe survivors of child sexual abuse, Angie supposes she might be able to give out the bank transfer details.
Well, except that the bank info’ Angie provided is bogus. So Angela offers a convenient alternative: just send the money to her GoFundMe page, and she’ll be sure to send it along to…who were we talking about again?
She even passes along her PayPal info, just in case ‘Karen Johnson’ is interested in donating to Angie’s ‘Give Me Money for Being a Professional Grifter’ fund.
We find it impressive that Angie somehow manages to keep turning the conversation back to donating to her, her, HER!, even though ‘Karen Johnson’ clearly wants to make a donation to a legitimate charity. And fascinating that Angie seems to have so many channels through which it’s possible to donate.
(Incidentally, ‘Karen Johnson’ really does plan to make a donation, but it’ll be to David Cheroli’s charity, not Angela’s scam.)
