There is a new email scam targeting Florida REALTORS® members, according to the state organization. A fake “GoFundMe” campaign purports to raise money for a member’s child suffering from a rare disease. The “Help Support Rory” email appears to come from Florida REALTORS®. The donation link goes directly to PayPal. However, Florida REALTORS® wants to warn its members that it has not send this email and will never send a GoFundMe request to NEFAR's members.
