Manitoba’s fishing community wants to know what happened to the proceeds from a charity tournament earmarked for the Children’s Hospital Foundation.
I remember aaron weibe, called out the guy.. because there's a discrepancy, from the donation proceeds from 100% 80% to 20%, people didnt believed it. but we was rightUnfortunately there were some signs early on that Lillyman was not a reputable person, but these got swept under the rug and dismissed as unfair "negativity". As one of the owners of a business that donated a prize to this event....the situation has left me feeling quite jaded. Going forward, I will be very hesitant to give the benefit of the doubt to people without a reputation who are trying to organize these types of events.
This isn't the first time unfortunately. For those that are relatively new to the forum scene, there was an individual who used to run the Manitoba Anglers forum who pulled a similar stunt in relation to exploiting a charity for personal gain. He was eventually figured out, caught by police and deported back to the US (I think he was a fugitive but my memory is getting foggy on that). Anyway....I hope the police are able to make the Lillyman situation right and recover the money he apparently stole.
