If you asked Mark Bunker what he does for a living, his answers would likely be misleading and questionable at best. His background as to accomplishments and making a living are riddled with dependency on others.
In possibly impolite, but factual terms, Bunker is a seasoned freeloader.
In late 2010, Bunker started what would become a series of fundraising campaigns for a project that never came to fruition despite the financial support.
Three years into the campaigns, with over $67,000 raised, Bunker took to another platform to get additional handouts while using an exaggerated and creative description for the fundraising campaign, claiming “legal troubles”.
Bunker explained he was being evicted at the insistence of the Church of Scientology, a tall tale which never came true yet Bunker still received sufficient donations to cover his rent.
Two months later, he re-started the earlier fundraising campaigns.
In his thirteenth campaign, Bunker assured his backers that he was wrapping up his project and encouraged further donations.
“Thanks to you, I’m wrapping up production on my own documentary… I want to have it finished by the end of the year. So if you can, contribute to the latest fundraising campaign….”
After almost five years, Bunker completed his fourteenth and last fundraiser on this platform, having amassed $87,967.
Six months later, he seemed to start over again, this time using GoFundMe and pushed donations on that campaign for at least 5 months, which included him dramatizing claims of “legal opposition”.
