    Chapter 17 members, don't fall for this

    A couple of members received an email like this.... the email is 'signed' by the chapter president, but certainly does not originate from him.....

    I need you to purchase varieties of Ebay or Amazon gift cards which totals $500. 5qty of $100. you can get them at any Kohls, CVS, Kwik, Macy's, Wal-Mart, or Walgreen's Store.
    I tried purchasing the cards online myself but my credit card company is denying the immediate approval. I'll be responsible for reimbursement of cards bought.
    Take the pictures of the pin #'s and send to Veterans Hospice Palliative Care <veterans_care@ts-kc.com> and notify me when it's done.
    Do you understand? Can you handle this for me today?
    Regards,

    Ignore it, delete it actually hold the shift key down and press delete....

    not a chapter project, not condoned, warning warning warning....

    This exact same scam just went through my workplace. I don't know if the email address is the same, but they had the boss name and everything. I didn't get one, but it happened on a large scale.

    Crazy world.
