Tennessee Elder Rescued from Fraud

On Wednesday, December 16, 2015, law enforcement officials in Chattanooga, Tennessee posted a “Scam Alert” on their official Facebook page, which was reposted on the website of a local news station. The post informed the public of what appeared to be a one-off life insurance scam that targeted a local elderly woman in Hamilton County. “Someone she knew had a loved one that passed away a few weeks prior,” explained Matt Lea, the Public Information Officer for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. “They told her there was an unclaimed life insurance policy.” It’s not known if the scammers targeted other people, too.

Lying about having medical experts who could provide services to terminally ill children. Running a bone marrow registry and cancer research center. Neither existed. Preparing and submitting incomplete and falsified financial reports. Pretending to have a functioning board of directors made up of people who had no connection to the organization. Granting wishes to terminally ill children through its “Make A Dream” program, which “did little more in several years than donate one laptop computer to one child and send another child to Disney World.” Finish reading this article on the Asurea Scam Report.
