Internet Trolls

Posting on behalf of SHW President Robert Wharton:

Over the past few days several SHW members have reported receiving email requests from me, Robert, for gift cards and money wires/transfers. Please understand that NONE of those messages come from me. I will never ask you for money or items of monetary value (e.g. gift cards). If you are ever in doubt, please contact me to verify authenticity of the message prior to taking action. Otherwise, delete the message and go on with your day. Please don’t forward the messages to me as there is little I can do to stop them. Awareness is the best defense in this case. Cheers…Robert Wharton, SHW President.
