IMPORTANT NEWS AND INFORMATION
SCAM ALERT - FOR OPEN DISTRIBUTION TO ALL MEMBERS
We have received a few phone calls from members who have been in contact with a gentleman by the name of Billy Newman. This guy is fishing for information and tells them he is a member of The American Legion. Some have talked to him about purchasing a life membership and is trying to get them to provide their bank account information. On one of them, he has a phone number and the caller ID comes up unavailable. The phone number that was given to me about this is 317-967-6675. I called the number and the voicemail message says he is Billy Newman with The American Legion.
An investigation has been opened and below are the case and complaint numbers:
Indiana Attorney General's office - Case # 11641793
Federal Trade Commission - Case # 138205801
Federal Communications Commission -Case # 4946314
If you hear from others who have fallen for this scam, please send it to me. I have a file started on this and want to keep records on it. Also, if you do talk to them, ask them how this Billy Newman contacted them. – what initiated the call? Was a fishing scam? Were they trying to get a hold of someone at the National Headquarters?
