Re: Possible Spam RE: making Donations to a Group in Lithuania (JGFF) #general

Yes, I received via JGFF what is apparently the same message. The sender's initials were EB (I omit the full name out of caution). The message sought contributions to a "Litvak Memorial Garden." I was initially suspicious, but I did an internet search for "Litvak Memorial Garden" (not using the link in the message) and it apparently does exist. However, the message also gives a Lithuanian email address for the fund: jbfund [dot] lt; whether that's legit I cannot say, and I don't want to risk going to that site.
In any case, I find it quite objectionable that JGFF is being used for solicitation purposes, even if legitimate. I hope the powers that be at JewishGen will address this.
