The email is reported to have “Terry Recovery” in the subject line, appears to be coming from the association’s email domain and includes an association logo. The email claims that a member of the association has a terminally ill child and invites recipients to a GoFundMe page called “Terry Recovery Journey” for donations.

This email is a scam and should be deleted immediately.

GoFundMe and PayPal have been notified and have disabled the account, but there is still risk of viruses and malware when opening emails or clicking links that are from illegitimate sources.
