SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -
Con artists hoping to take advantage of generous and patriotic Mississippians are using the name of the Honor Flight organization in their latest scam.
Southern District Public Service Commissioner Leonard Bentz issued a warning about the calls Thursday. Bentz said his office has received several complaints about callers claiming to be from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Honor Flight (MGCHF). But Bentz said that organization is not calling or soliciting any type of donations by telephone.
"If you receive a phone call from someone representing themselves as a member of the Honor Flight, do not give them any personal information or promise any sort of donation," Bentz said. "Hang up immediately and call my office at 1-800-356-6429."
Mississippi Gulf Coast Honor Flight is a legitimate, not for profit organization that honors the service and sacrifices of America's World War II Veterans, by organizing and sponsoring one-day, free trips to Washington, D.C. for these heroes to visit and reflect at their WW-II Memorial.
The National Honor Flight Network is a nationwide family of local "hubs" dedicated to this purpose. Financial support is understandably the greatest immediate need and every WWII Veteran travels absolutely free.
