Answer: Try to work the rubes one more time via GoFundMe.
First, we have this fundraiser, created way back on January 27, 2015, entitled "Adult Con Outreach". The actual name of the event is "AdultCon", but in hindsight, Shelley's rendering of it is more true to her intentions.
Here's what Shelley says the money is needed for:
A quick side note: Lubben doesn't live in Santa Barbara, she lives out in the sticks of Springville, Calif., 210 miles away.
Now, I don't recall whether Lubben and her gang actually attended the 2015 AdultCon in Los Angeles, but if they did, they obviously didn't need this money to do so. But regardless of whether they attended or not, seeing as how Pink Cross Foundation was officially shut down in February 2016 -- nine months ago at press time -- why the heck is this fundraiser still in place?
The good news is, potential donors seem to have asked themselves the same question; the page has only seen a $10 increase in the last nine months:
Now this second Lubben fundraising scam is my favorite, for it gives us another glimpse into the workings of her wine-soaked diabolical mind.
This one, far less successful than its predecessor, was created on May 12, 2015, which coincided with her move to a new property in Springville, Calif. It was originally entitled "Shelley's Birthday Wish", and we previously reported on it here.
Well, two birthdays came and went; Pink Cross is, like the snows of yesteryear, gone from the face of the earth, and yet the fundraiser remains online.
Even better, Lubben has, in recent months, had to sell her own clothes and household items to make ends meet. And without an anti-porn operation to promote, how the hell could she be planning a trip to the UK? The only trip Shelley's likely to be going on anytime soon is one to the state penitentiary. And a months-long search of UK speaking gigs for the disgraced "rebel prophet" turned up nothing.
However, the most interesting part is this: whilst the fundraiser was originally posted by Lubben on behalf of Pink Cross Foundation, she has since altered it to read "on behalf of Garrett Lubben."
Garrett is her ex-husband, against whom she has pressed dubious legal charges and who sought a protective order against her. Mr. Lubben has gone on record to state in no uncertain terms that he and his daughters want no ties to Shelley whatsoever. In fact, he had no idea that his name was on this fundraiser until we informed him on November 21, 2016. In other words, "on behalf of Garrett Lubben" is another Shelley Lubben lie, and likely one meant to somehow ensnare her ex in more of her nonsensical schemes.
Once a con artist, always a con artist. That's our Shelley.
UPDATE -- Nov 26, 2016:
Both campaigns have been pulled from GoFundMe. The webpage for each now looks like this:
A source indicates that the monies collected will be returned to the donors.
