Who is going to pay for all the legal fees, now that there is no fund?  ID working for nothing?

Hard to believe the directors/trustees suddenly grow a conscience.

Or is that just twitter hoax?

Clarence Mitchell Lies on NZ Radio By admin, on April 19th, 2009

I’d stress as well that the money that people have donated from around the world is only being spent on that campaign and Kate and Gerry’s legal costs and media management in the shape of me that’s all coming from the financial benefactors who are contributing quite separately so that anybody who has given money to help find Madeleine need have no fear that their money is being spent on lawyers fees or anything like that. . . . → Read More: Clarence Mitchell Lies on NZ Radio - See more at: http://mccannfundfraud.info/#sthash.u0cXiyU4.dpuf

 Brian Kennedy gave an interview at the Rothley War Memorial on May 17, 2007. He was eager to tell us how to donate money to the “Fund” via two banks – the Nat West and the Royal Bank of Scotland. He also told us that the money would mainly be used for legal expenditure. . . . → Read More: Brian Kennedy Admits Madeleine Fund was for Legal Expenditure - See more at: http://mccannfundfraud.info/#sthash.u0cXiyU4.dpuf

Back in the summer of 2007 when the McCanns stayed in Portugal for four months following the disappearance of their daughter Madeleine, the two wealthy doctors were in financial difficulty. Gerry McCann’s sister Patricia recently revealed that family members helped them to pay the mortgage payments on their house in Rothley, Leicestershire. . . . → Read More: - See more at: http://mccannfundfraud.info/#sthash.u0cXiyU4.dpuf

The Fund is still open!

Post by Enid O'Dowd on Fri Dec 06, 2013 7:14 pm

Following rumours that The Fund is no longer taking donations I decided to check this out.

I made a £1 donation from my Irish current account on Monday 2nd December by online bank transfer to the NatWest account number given on the McCann's website.

Today I received a Payment Debit Advice note confirming the transfer had been made. The £1 left my account on Monday and when I checked just now, my donation had not been returned.

If the money comes back, which looks unlikely at this stage, I will post the details.

So it would appear these are only rumours after all.
Could it be possible that the donated money went to an alternative charity though,if the fund is under investigation surely the police wouldn't want to draw attention to that until enough evidence has been gathered.
Probably naive of me and wishful thinking from me,to the beginning of the end though.

I cannot donate.  There are a few opportunities on the website to push the donate button:

On the home page
On the support page
On the online store page

Regardless of which button I use I end up with a message to say the store is being updated, check back soon.

Tiny, I don't know.  I have tried in the other countries sections also, and get the same result.

I have been checking this for close on two weeks now, with the same outcome each time.

Perhaps someone 'reading' here realised that a 'straggling loop-hole' remained, that hadn't yet been closed down, and did it pretty smartish. ... big grin

Thanks.  So the bank account is live, but the website is not.  Is that the case ?

Donating to the Fund

Post by Enid O'Dowd on Sat Dec 07, 2013 10:28 am

Yes I made my donation by bank transfer which is easy if you have online banking. In the Support section of the website the bank account details are given and also IBAN and BIC numbers which you need if you are not in the UK.

It is true that you can't donate directly from their site - if you press donate online you get a message - we are updating our online store.


I think that message has been there for at least a couple of weeks -perhaps someone would clarify how long direct donating has been unavailable.

Since the bank account is open and accepting my £1 you would think they would finish their 'updating' to facilitate potential donors.

Bellisa - thanks for the information.

So it would appear to have been down for 3 weeks at least. Odd that it would not be sorted in that time. But I do not believe that the Fund is losing much by this!

It will be interesting to see the income in the accounts to 31 March 2013 which are due to be filed by the end of this month, though unlikely we will get any analysis of that income.

No problem Enid.

I cant imagine many donations been made myself.
Yes I look forward to seeing them also, I believe they are to be filed before the 31st. Do you know how soon they would become available to view?

I remember that the book had a sticker on it which said that all profits would be donated to the Fund. I look forward to seeing how much they were. I recollect that there was no mention of any advance received in last year's accounts, so it should be the full amount and not the balance.

Accounts etc normally become available very shortly after they have been received. At certain times there can be a backlog of submissions for processing which can be the case at the end of the calendar year. Companies House should be aware of the busy filing times and rota staff accordingly. However over Xmas and New Year staff want to take leave which can add to delays. If the Fund Accounts are filed on Dec 31, hopefully they would be available in a matter of days.

Miraflores - you might like to refer to my report on the Fund on www.mccannfiles.com where I comment on the advance and draw what conclusions I can from the limited information in the Fund accounts. My second report (accounts year to March 2012) would be the relevant one.
