So that guy with the Gofundme campaign to build the wall … is now piggybacking another scam off of it, complete with a website that’s practically wholly composed of all kinds of dark patterns to get people to hand over a name and an email address, up to and including making it look as if you have to hand over this information to visit the website. He’s claiming it’s a petition to the White House, but if that were the case, why wouldn’t he use the White House’s own native petition functionality of their website? I mean, for crying out loud, it so easy to find it’s ridiculous, and wonder of wonders, it actually works. This guy just keeps tripping the BS alarm.
