Family members say fundraising page wasn't legitimate

Family members of two women killed in two separate car accidents alleged an online fundraising page set up in their name was not legitimate.

Monica Bueno and her aunt Josefina Bueno were killed in two separate accidents within one day.

Monica was killed Sunday and Josefina was killed Monday.

On Wednesday, a fundraiser appeared on the YouCaring website asking for money to support the Bueno family during their time of need.

The Bueno family contacted ABC 57 News saying the fundraiser was not legitimate.

ABC 57 News reached out to the owners of YouCaring, and they said they contacted the person who started the page for verification the family was involved.

That person didn't respond, but did take down the fundraising page.
