Jonny Craig’s Indiegogo Campaign Raises Over $10,000; Every Time I Die Frontman Comments

by | Feb 21, 2013

Former Dance Gavin Dance frontman Jonny Craig’s Indiegogo campaign for his new EP has raised over $10,000 — and it has stirred up quite a conversation.

Last night Every Time I Die frontman Keith Buckley tweeted, “Hey @DeepakChopra, now that @jonnycraig4L has received over $10k in donations, can you officially confirm that karma does not exist?”

When All That Remains vocalist Phil Labonte asked who Craig was, Buckley stated “he pretends to sell computers to people, collects their money then never sends them the product. Now he’s asking for money.”

Buckley, of course, is referring to Craig’s infamous MacBook scam in 2011 where he convinced fans to wire transfer hundreds of dollars in exchange for a laptop that was never delivered, then purchased drugs.

At the time of this posting, one fan has claimed Craig’s top perk in his campaign — spending $2500 to sing or perform on his upcoming EP.
