Please Help

I posted about Wish Upon a Hero yesterday and wanted to update a bit to see if any of you could help the hero that traveled to pick up this family. Her name is Ginny and she is known as luvangel on that site. I am unable to post directly to her wish or her name for some reason. She is a remarkably selfless person that drove across the county to help someone she didn't know. If you read her profile it is obvious her motivation, she had an abusive relationship for 18 yrs and then he kidnapped her children. She has never seen them again. She is in dire need of someone in MO to train her dog as a service dog due to her many health issues. Some things have happened on this trip that I am not able to speak of yet but I will ad to this post when I get the go ahead. It turns out there was more to the story than we were told with this family. Ginny has no way to pay her bills this month due to the huge expense of this trip. Any help financially or for her dog would be greatly appreciated.

Updated-I didn't want to post until some of it was out of the bag over there. They scammed these poor women into getting them across the state and then stole from them. They threatened this very disabled woman. She is now out a ton of money and they are resting in a motel. They plan on leaving sometime today and driving to my house to sleep tonight and get a bite of food. Both women have gone completely out of their way to help a woman they thought was being abused.

Since on the road her health issues became very clear to this other woman that volunteered. She had a wish that had already been posted about needing her dog professionally trained to help her b/c her current dog will not be able to anymore. It is the only thing keeping her living on her own. She has rescued 27 women from horrible situations and returned them to their family over the years. She didn't think twice about it. She has no family and has social anxiety that has prevented her from making friends. She is all alone and needs this dog. If you know someone that does this or live in the MO area, please contact me.

I'm sorry that I'm not able to help her, specifically, but found several people on the site I could help with little things. A lot of the stories are heartbreaking and it's obvious when it's legit. And if someone's scamming me out of footie pajamas, so be it. As long as some child is wearing them! The site is addicting though. Some people are just asking for cards & prayers... how can you turn them down?

So let me get this straight... I'm trying to reread your post and comprehend... the grandmother [handle "cyells"] was scamming all those "heros?" Was it just some woman trying to hitch a ride or get money? Did she robb Ginny? Were there never any kids involved? I'm guessing all the "drama" took place b/f you were to provide warm beds and food to the family of "cyells?"
