USGA Warns Public of U.S. Open Scam
The United States Golf Association is warning of a scam that attempts to solicit workers for the U.S. Open at Winged Foot.
The U.S. Open is set to take place in mid September and is closed to fans and only limited volunteers.
The USGA released the following statement:
“The USGA was recently made aware of a fraudulent email campaign in which persons are falsely posing as USGA representatives to offer job candidates part-time employment for use of their vehicles to advertise for the 2020 U.S. Open. Please be advised that this is a scam. This email campaign and the persons involved are in no way affiliated with or have any connection to the USGA or the U.S. Open. Do not respond to the email and do not provide any personal or financial information. If you receive any such email or solicitation, please email the USGA at email@example.com. You may also want to notify your local law enforcement regarding this scam.”
