Yesterday started off slow on the Hoaxtead front: not much going on, and we were toying with the idea of a story about Araya Soma’s latest advice on novel ways to use one’s own urine. But then we heard that Angela Fag-Ash Disney had finally published her account of where that missing Kenya Project money went, and all thoughts of urine enemas vanished instantly.
(Yes. Urine enemas. You finally have something to thank Angie for.)
She’s been hinting broadly that she was being forced to open her books to an audit (whether from Revenue or the Gardai, or both, we aren’t sure), and yesterday, with a grand flourish, she published the results.
First, a little review.
Here’s Angela’s triumphant Facebook post from July 2014, as reported on 25 March, 2016:
Now, have a look at what Angie says today about funds raised versus funds disbursed:
According to this accounting, Angela personally donated €3,515, and the Kenya Project donated €8,410, for a grand total of €11,925. With us so far? Good.
However, if you’ll recall, David Chesoli’s own records tell a different story:
He states that she started making donations in late 2011, not 2009; and his figures add up to €8,175, not €11,925.
How did this happen? Well, Angie cannot seem to account for it.
So naturally she does what any decent charity scammer would do: she blames the charity, making a thinly veiled suggestion that David Chesoli might have skimmed from the donations himself!
We wonder how David Chesoli will feel once he realises that Angela has tried to shift the blame for her creative accounting to him?
We’re sure he’ll be mightily impressed with her generosity in allowing that it could have been human error or poor transaction rates. That’s very kind of her, under the circumstances.
Angie finishes up with a lovely touch of false piety combined with an implied death threat:
For anyone wondering about the reference to Mordecai and the gallows, we’d tell the whole story of the Book of Esther, but it’s a real megillah. Suffice to say, Mordecai was falsely accused of a crime, and the person who accused him wound up dying in his place.
If we were Angela, we’d be very careful about using that analogy, given how many decent, innocent people she’s falsely accused (now including David Chesoli).
Another financial question mark
And meanwhile, here’s another fascinating anomaly to chew on: in one of the screenshots that Angie provided, we can see that she is repaying a loan at €100 per week to the Oldcastle Credit Union:
Out of curiosity, we wondered what she might be repaying, so we had a look at the Oldcastle Credit Union’s online loan calculator:
At their standard loan rate, it seems that she could have taken out a loan for approximately €20,000 (plus €4,504.39 interest).
Twenty thousand euros…wait, where have we heard that figure before?
Oh, right, it’s all coming back to us now: wasn’t that the amount she claimed to have suddenly and unexpectedly received from her sister Fiona’s estate?
If we recall, part of it went to fund her friend Rupert’s trip to London to smoke out the so-called ‘cult’; while Angie ‘invested’ another €10,000 in her own GoFundMe account, to encourage further donations from real donors. (By the way, we checked: the designated recipient of a GoFundMe account may withdraw some or all of the proceeds, whether or not the account has reached its stated goal. How conveeeeeenient.)
Well, no one could ever accuse Angie of being a good money manager, could they?
