A bizarre GFM

Well, IndieGoGo time. They're trying to bail out Greece and raise over $1.8 billion in a few days. This seems really suspicious to me.

    I think that's both hilarious and depressing. I also wonder who it really goes to!

    This part makes it extra shady: 

    Pledge €3 and get a postcard sent from Greece of Alex Tsipras, the Greek Prime Minister. We’ll get them made and posted in Greece and give a boost to some local printers and post offices. Maybe the odd will write Efharisto on it for you.

    Pledge €6 and get a greek Feta and Olive salad

    Pledge €10 and get a small bottle of Ouzo sent to you

    Pledge €25 and get a bottle of Greek wine


    Who's paying for the cost of shipping and whatnot? What if I donate 25 euro? Are they sending a bottle of Greek wine to the states for me? How does that work? Seems like they'd have to spend more than the 25 euro just on shipping. Also this made me laugh. 


    Edited because for some reason the font was super tiny
