Sons of Confederate Veterans support for our nation and the rule of law

(Elm Springs, TN) 14 August 2017 — The Sons of Confederate Veterans opposes the KKK and other racist organizations. The SCV condemns in the strongest possible way the actions, words, and beliefs of any racist group. These groups are filled with hatred and bigotry, and racism is counter to the American principles of freedom for all citizens. Neither white supremacists nor any other racist group represent true Southern Heritage or the Confederate Soldier, Sailor, or Marine. In like-manner, the SCV condemns the actions of the “Antifa” counter-protestors whose role was to meet violence with violence and to answer hate with hate. Particularly, the SCV condemns the Alt-Left’s attempts to attack Confederate monuments and other war memorials in an attempt to tarnish the true history of our great nation and to further their modern socialist political agenda.

Beware of Email Scammers

We have been made aware that scammers have been attempting to steal money from various organizations and members by sending emails that claim to come from an officer of the organization and requesting the recipient of the email scam to send either cash or gift cards for some made up cause.

Here is a partial email that contains part of the scam email messages:

“I need your assistance, are you available? I’m out of town, I need you to handle this for (they place the name of the organization here). We need some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice Care and welfare with patients …”

The scammers will word their email scam messages in various ways, but the general idea of the scam remains similar.

DO NOT FALL FOR THESE EMAIL SCAMS!

If you receive an email like these or similar scam emails, DO NOT click on any links in the emails and DO NOT save and DO NOT click on any email attachments. Delete the email.
