There is a new email rip-off targeting Florida Realtors® customers. A faux “GoFundMe” campaign purports to raise income for a member’s youngster suffering from a unusual illness.
The “Help Help Rory” e-mail seems to come from Florida Realtors. The donation url goes specifically to PayPal.
Florida Realtors did not send this email. Also, Florida Realtors will never ever send a GoFundMe ask for to our users.
If a fake electronic mail asks for “a favor” or donation, do not get into it – or any other e-mail merely due to the fact you believe in the sender.
