Memorial day scams 

This Memorial Day Weekend, don’t be scammed by a fake charity.  Ro and I received a call this Sunday from an individual who knew my first name and stated he was from a National Veteran’s Organization soliciting funds. He rapidly spoke the organization’s name which I did not recognize and read from a script. When I tried to interrupt him to get him to repeat the organization’s name, he continued to talk. I finally asked him for information on his organization and where I could find a copy of the organization’s 990 and registration documents. He immediately hung-up. The last digits of the number are x636. Let’s be vigilant, always check-out and confirm the legitimacy of any organization that solicits.  Ro & Slots
