Our world has wonderful opportunities to communicate instantly through many technology avenues . These include email, texting, Twitter, and Facebook. Along with these opportunities comes responsibility. People who want to deceive and steal are out there looking to abuse this for us.
- Our Region and our Clubs have experienced this multiple times. It is imperative that our leadership do all possible to address this.
- This is even more important to our volunteers who are Treasurers and Presidents. Scammers have and will attempt to use media avenues to steal from our organization.
- Here is an actual scam attempt. My name was spoofed.
SPOOFING CLUES TO LOOK FOR: bad punctuation, incorrect usage of upper and lower case letters, and Bill's title in parentheses .
- At this time we would like to recommend to our clubs and to our Region team that all dialog or requests having to do with money be addressed by phone or personal contact. Never send money in response to an email or text. These individuals are stealing the identity of officers in order to steal and deceive.
- If you suspect that a person is attempting to deceive you , please call the real person rather than sharing information inadvertently.
- This may or may not happen to you but as Region President I wanted to give you a “ heads up” to the possibilities.
To lessen the exposure of private membership information to the outside world, with the exceptions of the REGIONAL LEADERSHIP TEAM, and DAYLILY VENDORS, all contact information on this website is limited to an email address… no phone number, no physical address. We are attempting to be proactive on this potentially serious issue.
Bill Hurt, Region 15 President
