ALERT: Possible Elderly GLBT Scam
I received this from an FTM friend and thought I'd share here. My poll didn't receive much response, so I don't know how many of you are still reading me, but here you go.

Dear Colleagues:

Shortly after Creating Change, one of our colleagues from the LGBT Aging Project in MA received a request from a group called LambdaPride. Org Senior Advocacy Group to fill out a survey and participate in their LGBT aging research. There is a click through to "learn more about their organization. The phone number at the site was a Dallas area code (I say was, because the phone number has changed twice since we investigated it).

In doing some inquiry, it appears that this group is a scam. The author identified on the site is an author, however, he is an author of some pretty right-wing fundamentalist information. Further, the link to click for more information takes you directly to Paypal, with suggested donation levels.

It seems clear that this organization is a scam, using keywords that may attract unwary LGBT elders to give their name and address.

I encourage you to share this information out, especially if you had constituents who attended Creating Change, in case they receive a similar solicitation.
