Syrian Appeal Scam on Facebook

Submitted by Elisabeth on Tue, 05/24/2016 - 3:15pm

We wanted to let everyone know that we just received a phone call from a member of our community.

She had been contacted by a General Roland Jeffrey with the "MultiNational Corporation" on Facebook, looking for financial support of their work to assist Syrian refugees. This person referenced that they had worked with United Way and specifically our United Way. While there were some legitimate sounding parts of the story, there were others that smelled distinctly like a scam to her. She alerted us to it and we agree.

If you've been approached by anyone, referring to us in any capacity like this, please report that to facebook and also let us know.
