There are few things the MAGA crowd loves more than a black Republican. The meteoric rise of Candace Owens and the embrace of Kanye West, despite his Hollywood A-list status, are symptomatic of a group desperate to prove it isnt racist.
Over the past few months, the conservative sections of social media have become fixated on the #WalkAway campaign, urging Democrats and minorities to take off their blinders and join the Republican party. Late last month, it seemed that the Republican party had added a black college student named Quran to its ranks.
She tweeted, I will not hide any longer,, the left has made us feel as if us black republicans should hide!! but not anymore!! #BlacksForTrump #WalkAway #maga and attached a photo of herself in a red bucket hat emblazoned with the famous Make America Great Again slogan.

According to a Zero Hedge article (which is "not welcome" on FR she scammed Trump supporters out of $150,000:
This is why you don’t give money to total strangers online. I don’t care what sob story they say the second they start asking for cash you can smell the scam
Words of wisdom.
Scamming is against the law. She will be arrested for fraud soon now that its out.
“This is why you dont give money to total strangers online.”
It never ceases to amaze me that people will do just that. More proof that P. T. Barnum was right.
“Scamming is against the law. She will be arrested for fraud soon now that its out.”
I’m not sure about that - what did she promise in return for the money?
Fools and their money.
WTF isn’t she arrested!? If I scammed libtards, I would be in jail.
And yes, quran, we do think that you're stupid.
Oh, and watch out for that karma thingy...it's a bitch.
FRAUD, pure and simple.
To get her for fraud, you must prove INTENT to deceive.
“WTF isnt she arrested!? If I scammed libtards, I would be in jail.”
Who are the victims of her crime?
Have they come forward and filed complaints against her?
Majoring in “Art History” , she’s the one getting scammed
It's allowed in their culture and, of course, we must respect their culture since all cultures are equal. /s
Nigerian scammers have really upped their game...
She solicited money under false pretenses. She pretended to be a Trump supporter in order to defraud.
Under federal law, obtaining money or property through false pretenses as part of a scheme or artifice to defraud, and using means of interstate commerce such as a telephone, is illegal under title 18 USC section 1343; the crime is usually referred to as “Wire Fraud.”
The elements of false pretenses are: (1) a false representation (2) of a material past or existing fact (3) which the person making the representation knows is false (4) made for the purpose of causing (5) and which does cause (6) the victim to pass title (7) to his property  False pretenses is a statutory offense in most jurisdictions; subject matter covered by statute varies accordingly, and is not necessarily limited to tangible personal property - some statutes include intangible personal property and services. For example, the North Carolina false pretense statute applies to obtaining “any money, goods, property, services, choses in action, or any other thing of value ...” Under common law, false pretense is defined as a representation of a present or past fact, which the thief knows to be false
Fraud can be prosecuted as a civil case or a criminal case.
“She pretended to be a Trump supporter in order to defraud.”
Therein lies the problem, proving she didn’t support Trump at some point. It’s difficult to prove what someone’s thoughts are about anything - if they changed their thoughts and like workings of the mind.
On this, she’ll have plenty of trouble, but I expect that’s about all. The people that turned over their money could sue in civil court, but it would cost them more to get their money back than it’s worth.
I expect the suckers best route is to go through GoFundMe or whatever online begging platform the person used and be a bit wiser in the future about such things.
She proved it for us by admitting it. Is it confession good enough for you or do you require video? Idiot
