Fraud Alert: Beware of Scams Implying Association with KFF

KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation) has been made aware of various correspondences, being circulated via e-mail, from Internet websites, and via regular mail or facsimile, falsely stating that they are issued by, or in association with KFF and/or its officials. These scams, which may seek to obtain money and/or in many cases personal details from the recipients of such correspondence, are fraudulent.

KFF strongly recommends that the recipients of solicitations such as those described above exercise extreme caution in respect of such solicitations. Financial loss and identity theft could result from the transfer of money or personal information to those issuing such fraudulent correspondence. Victims of such scams may also report them to their local law enforcement authorities for appropriate action.
