Sir Maejor Page fraudulent GoFundMe for BLM in Atlanta

While GoFundMe said only $13,154 was raised on their platform, they did say that donors can request a refund.

The charges, according to the complaint, stem from fraudulent use of donations received. A witness tipped off the FBI that Conyers-Page may have been using the Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta (BLMGA) non-profit organization to make money.
