(8/6/20 Update)

    Emails have been going out that look like they have come from me requesting a donation to support COVID-19 donation centers.  This is a complete scam.  Please do not respond to this email as it replies to an email that is not mine. 

    Sorry for the inconvenience and we are looking into it further.

    Michael Bauer, President, IDFDFW

    Below is an excerpt from this bogus email (do not respond to this email):

    Please confirm by email if you are available? We are making a charity donation for the support of quarantining centers, payment needs to process out soon and currently out of town on a trip. Glad if you can help take care of this payment, don't worry i will work on the reimbursement ASAP just give me a mailing address and cell number for proper documentation on your reimbursement.

    Let me know if you can get this done either by PayPal or Cash App, those are the following payment option due to COVID-19 virus.
