Beware of Scam

27 April 2009 - 11:47 PM

Greetings –

Region 10 Director Marla Miller is reporting that some members in her region are receiving an email stating that AKA member Jerry Fincher is stuck in England and needs $2,500 to pay expenses and get home to the USA.

Marla reports that it is all one big scam. Jerry is, indeed, home in Washington and doesn’t need the money to get out of England. If you receive one of the hoax emails, please report it as spam.
