SCAM ALERT

It has been brought to our attention that someone is sending emails using our Chapter President’s name, Charlie Knowlden, and attempting to solicit money for Veterans at Hospice and Palliative care units. The emails are using Charles name but have an incorrect email address. The Chapter does not, and will not, solicit funds for any activity that is not affiliated with a Chapter event or activity. If you receive any emails soliciting funds for any reason, please ignore them and feel free to contact us for any questions or clarification. This unfortunately is not the first time scammers have targeted our Chapter and it probably will not be the last. We have not lost any funds due to previous scams and we are asking you to be vigilent and do not give any money to anyone without first verifying who they are and the organization that they are will.  We require 2 signatures for all checks written and for any withdrawals from the bank.

Below is the latest email that is being circulated

Charles Knowlden <ricegang@ntelos.net>

Hello Bob
Are you available to assist? I am quite unavailable now and I’ve got credence in you to take care of this. I would have called your phone but I presently do not have access to my mobile phone.
Susquehanna Chapter of Trout Unlimited #044 needs some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice and Palliative care units for preventive items from Corona Disease (COVID-19). I am liable for reimbursement. Need more info?

Again, if you have any questions about this or any other future solicitations being made under the name of the Chapter, please let us know.
