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.Risk Warning:
