Beware of Scam Messages
We have received several calls, text messages, and emails over the last few days asking about emails and text messages that look like they are coming from President Marcus Soulsby or other members of the National Federation of the Blind of West Virginia. The emails or text messages are asking people to contact Marcus or other members of the National Federation of the Blind of West Virginia Board of Directors urgently, or asking for gift cards and the codes to be sent to the sender of the message. We want to let you all know, this is a scam and not something that is being sent from Marcus or any other members of the National Federation of the Blind of West Virginia Board of Directors. It has been noted that the email address or phone number they are coming from is not Marcus's or others listed on the affiliate website, but they are using their names. The organization would not ever ask for gift card purchases or other personal information like this in emails or text messages.
If you ever do have a question about an email or text message that you receive from Marcus or anyone else from the National Federation of the Blind of West Virginia, and think it may be a scam, please make sure to reach out to Marcus or the name in the email or text message prior to sending any information to it. After determining the message is a scam, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org for their records.
