GoFundMe freezes funds of Calgary man who says he was injured while on mountain biking trail

GoFundMe

The Calgary man who says his neck was sliced by barbed wire while riding on a popular mountain bike trail in West Bragg Creek has had his online fundraising campaign frozen amid complaints about his story.

Stelianos Psaroudakis had been asking for $8,000 (£6,179) in donations through GoFundMe, a popular crowdfunding website, but the campaign has now been suspended.

Rachel Hollis, a GoFundMe spokesperson, said Psaroudakis “removed the campaign” himself and the company has frozen any funds he has raised to date, pending further investigation.
