McCann Fund Fraud

Overwhelming evidence shows that Madeleine McCann died in or near apartment 5A at the Ocean Club Resort in Praia da Luz in Portugal. Madeleine met her demise sometime between May 1 and May 3. Read the evidence in this website. The Fund they set up to look for Madeleine is fraudulent if any person involved in the case knew Madeleine was dead at the time it was set up. If you made a donation to the Madeleine Fund and are not happy with how your donation has been spent, please contact the site so we can form a group who can litigate against Madeleine's Fund: Leaving No Stone Unturned Limited.

Couple branded ‘despicable’ over Madeleine fund fraud

Published Date: 10 December 2008
A teenage couple who claimed they were collecting money for the fund for missing Rothley girl Madeleine McCann have been branded “despicable” in court. Dale Armstrong, 16, and Gareth Trainer, 18, admitted asking people in their home town of Hawick, southern Scotland, for money for the fund.

Armstrong was sentenced to 80 hours of community service at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Trainer after he failed to show up for sentencing.

    This is not completely true Gareth trainer was never arrested but turned up at court one week latter he was said to been off due to illness.
    and that the charges were not accurate in his statement he said that he was trying to defraud the community but not by these means but had no proof to dispute his case.
    he has stated the the reason for defrauding the community was that “he had no money for food, as the job center would not replace his stolen giro cheque, which was stolen by Richard Redmond of 18 Ivanhoe terrace Hawick. he also said the he had no food for two week and the he had to do what he needed to survive, he also added this was the worst thing anyone could have done but is truly sorry for what had happened.
    he has given all the money back.

    Site Admin: What isn’t true? The article never said Gareth Trainer was arrested. It says that a warrant was issued. Get your facts right!

    garath trainer is nothing like this. he would not have willing commited this offence, he is a gentle soul and cares for everyone but himself, i believe he only admitted to this as he was trying to ‘take the wrap’ and protect someone he thought he loved at the time. he is not the person this article describes. i know this from experience, he is and always will be a true friend.

    I’m sorry. I’d rather give money to a hungry young man than the lying rich McCanns.
