There is a new wepay set up for OWS that apparently has the blessing of finance
However he is taking 8% for support costs plus 3.5% for wepay

He was originally raising money for tents until I asked him about it.
He took information from my profile on facebook and started telling people
That our general fund,was under attack and to give to him.

I tried telling him  taking 11.5% is not needed when all he has to do
is post the nycga link.
He is a professional fundraiser (as am I) probably just trying to make money.
When I talked to him he accused me of trolling and lying.

Are we ok with ppl raising money for us online and "earmarking" 8% for
his costs?
As a fundraiser myself I am worried about where this will end up.
He has stated to mr he is going to start 100 wepay accounts.
