I remember this one time on Facepunch... some guy asked for money because "his grandmother was dieing and she needed support."
Overtime, I think people donated like $400-$500ish in total. Fast forward a month or two, it turns out he used the money to buy himself a new PC. Of course, the people who donated got all his information and ordered him 500 pizzas... those were good times.
After seeing that, I really don't trust anyone on the internet begging for money. It seems like a cheap way in too... taking money from people you don't know, online.
EDIT: Haha...haha... you guys may want to take a look at the video he put up on his indiegogo page. If you guys are looking to donate to a CoD clone, have fun with that.
