The last 10 thousand euros of donations on Gofundme did not come to the research for PSSD but were kept by Francesco

Francesco Mazzi is the one who had opened the initial fundraiser on Gofundme intended to fund Melcangi's research on PSSD.

He paid the University of Milan the first about 40 thousand euros correctly, then had unforeseen fiscal/bureaucratic issues due to his mistakes in declaring the donation money and has since kept the last about 10 thousand euros of the collected donations for himself.

For several months now:

He did not respond to the questions and concerns of many community users, including donors.

He has only sometimes responded to Melcangi (sometimes not) who asked him to disburse the last amount to the University.

He has only responded to one user in the Italian group, mentioning about these tax problems that he would like to overcome and eventually pass the last about 10 thousand euros to the University. He could already remit that money but he doesn't want to do so, (perhaps because he wants to use it to pay his fines, or has he already lost it?)

In February he replied to Melcangi that he would finish everything by March, then he disappeared again.

A few days ago, he replied to the Italian guy that he was sick and did not want to be heard from under these conditions. In the meantime, he updates his facebook profile with photos at the restaurant and gym.

His behavior is totally disrespectful, rude, no valid explanation to the community, no update, no apology message, he seems to have stolen the money for the PSSD research.

I hope this gets posted and stays online until he corrects his behavior.

Is it true all this ?

It’s for this kind of thing that I didn’t give anything.

Some time ago I asked Professor Melcanghi if we could give money blindly without fearing that unscrupulous people would use the misfortune of others to make money.

like I was right. :|
