USING AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL IN SCAM
Department Baseball Chairmen,
Greetings - With the ever increasing use of the internet and the tough economic times, especially at Christmas, the Scammers are out in full force. It has been brought to our attention that there is an individual(s) out of Punta Gorda, FL soliciting funds to sponsor an American Legion elite/all-star baseball team to travel to France and play. They promise gift cards in exchange for donations. We do not endorse nor have we authorized such an arrangement. It is unfortunate that scammers have invaded the tradition-rich program that veterans such as yourself have built. I would ask that you notify your posts, team managers, and any others of this scam. I would suggest that you stay vigilant during this time year against possible scams and pass the word. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
I hope you and your families have a blessed holiday season.
