    Please believe me this is not a scam, I promise you he really needs to get home ... His name is Martin and he's a close friend of mine and I'm just trying to help him get home.

    This is 20000% not a scam at all. Very serious. Our friend group has donated but it won't be enough.

    What do you want me to do. What would be satisfactory proof.

    I just have a game ad banner down here saying "Komm und sei der König der Piraten", and I am not sure if the ad engine is associating gbatemp users with one piece, games, or...
    (was this a cheap bump disguised as an OT comment?)

    I was also suspicious, but if you check the user that posted that picture on NeoGAF (looking at the post history and investigating around) you will see that she is a person from Australia that married someone from UK and they are waiting for him to get his citizenship to go back to UK. [1]

    PS: And not only from Australia, also from Queensland.[1] The GoFundMe campaign is also set in Queensland (QLD).[2]
    PS2: What proves nothing, but makes me feel less suspicious as they are many matches.

    [2] http://www.gofundme.com/su3ts4us

    PS3: Also, considering you perfectly and publicly know who @kongsnutz is (some people are that famous) I suppose you can take his word. He also is (or at least was when he reached fame) from QLD.
    PS4: Yeah, I just needed to write down the entire Sony home console family.

    Honestly, I don't have any cash on me; but my prayers are with your friend and his mum. Having someone who raised you, took care of you, loved you, finding them in this situation is truly heartbreaking.

    Thanks for believing guys, it really is a legit plea from me for a friend.

    Yes Brisbane Australia is where we both are. This is really real, and I wouldn't do it otherwise guys.

    I'm too well known for that haha.

    P.s Cilla is his wife and yes he's English and they met there in UK currently live in AUS, his family is thousands of miles away.

    This is begging and not allowed, no matter how serious.
