Recently a message was sent by someone representing themselves as our Council President, Stan Miller, requesting that funds be sent in the form of snapshots of gift cards for "Community Welfare with patients and Veterans at Hospice Care".
These messages are fraudulent do not reply in any way. The San Diego-Imperial Council will never solicit funds in such a manner. In the event that you receive a solicitation for support from Scouting or any other organization, we encourage a healthy level of skepticism and encourage you to verify the validity of such a request with our office.
We do not know the scope of volunteers to which this was sent or where the individual perpetrating this fraud acquired email addresses. These messages were not sent from Stan Miller's personal email address.
We hope that none of our Scouting families have fallen victim to this bad actor's attempts.
