All told, he walked away with thousands of dollars before GoFundMe closed his campaign and Facebook terminated his account. At the time of this report, he has not been prosecuted and continues to brag on social media about his scheme. Hernandez claims to have successfully withdrawn the money.
Perhaps the most heinous facet of his scheme is the timing and nature: Hernandez claimed to have COVID-19 in order to promote his pleas and allegedly took money from individuals during a time when many families in America were out of work and struggling to make ends meet.
Please consider sharing this report on social media to raise awareness about this individual and to help bring him to justice.
If Hernandez is lying about the money—evidence unfortunately points to him telling the truth—you will see below that he certainly made an attempt at scamming Trump supporters, encouraged others to do the same, and invested a considerable amount of time in doing so.

My account got disabled and taken down. The jig is officially up. But here are some highlights. I kept it generic and anti democrat and they ate it up. I spent about a week and had about 3500 friends. pic.twitter.com/mTyaqC0MBi— Esteban (@e_hernandez15) June 27, 2020
Hernandez, who may or may not be using his real name, created a GoFundMe campaign claiming to be a “Latino Trump supporter” who recently became homeless. Using a Facebook account, he herded numerous do-gooders to his profile, eventually amassing some 3,500 friends from conservative circles. Then, after they came to him out of the goodness of their hearts, he scammed scores of charitable Christian Trump supporters who reached out to support him.
Hernandez seems to have hatched his plan sometime around June 18th:
Guys hold on. I think I’m on to something here.— Esteban (@e_hernandez15) June 18, 2020
If we all come up with lying ass MAGA sob stories & have maga supporters donate to us on a go fund me or cashapp. We can scam racists.
Why should we lie & make up stories for donations? pic.twitter.com/fpi4fV5gvI
Here’s what his Go Fund Me page said:
“I have been an avid supporter of the truth all my life. I strongly support our current leadership that is Donald Trump. I have recently been kicked out of my parents home for standing up against the snowflake liberals. After constant arguing with my family, my parents said that I am no longer Mexican and that I am disappointment. I will not stop fighting for what is right. I will not be brainwashed by the media to go against the police. I will always stand with Blue Lives Matter because those men and women that protect us are under attack. I hope my fellow conservatives can help me in my time of need. I was working in the oilfield and due to this virus, I am out of job. Help me get back on my feet. I truly need anything. I stand with our President to Make America Great Again and I trust in my fellow Americans.”
An archive of the GoFundMe page is available, Nationalist Review created it from a text-only cache held on Google’s web servers from just two days after his campaign began. Screenshots posted by Hernandez indicate that he began receiving money shortly after this point.
Ultimately, his scam was shut down, but not before he walked away with a sizable chit for his misdeeds.
