It has come to my attention that an unauthorized email has been sent to many of our members and ex-members requesting funds for “one of our members and her son who needs special equipment before being taken to the UK for treatment.” This is absolutely NOT an email sent from headquarters. We have had nothing to do with this dishonest plea for money.
Do not respond to this email. It is bogus and a scam!
Please share this news with all your friends and family who may have received this phishing email. It is too bad that people resort to such dishonest means to con innocent people out of their hard earned money. But this has absolutely nothing to do with the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia. We would never send out an email like this.
