Alert and pass along widely please!
We have received a couple of 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.
We need to get the word out to the departments/leadership about this to scam.
