Charlotte County deputies warn against GoFundMe scam
CHARLOTTE COUNTY - The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office is warning you about a fake GoFundMe account for victims of a Port Charlotte home invasion murder
The sheriff's office says in a tweet this weekend that a fake GoFundMe has been set up claiming to help out the family of Khyler Edman after the 15-year-old was killed, by a home intruder while protecting his 5 year old sister on September 26th.
A family friend has set up a GoFundMe for the Edmans to cover funeral costs. As of Sunday, the GoFundMe more than tripled its goal, raising $84,000.
