I think I've been scammed. I emailed the local chapter of the March of Dimes a few weeks ago. Then, earlier this week I received an email from the "division director". He mentioned that he had recently received interest from another local resident and that maybe it's time we meet to discuss the possibility of hosting an event. I didn't recognize the other woman, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything. However, it did strike me as strange when he said she worked for the government. People around here wouldn't say they work for the government. Most people here either work for the university, hospital or school system. If they work for the "government" they would probably say they work for the city or county or the state. Anyway...

I replied that I'd love to meet and discuss starting an event. He replied back stating he would meet me here in my hometown. I then replied back asking if the other local woman would be joining us and that I'd rather meet him in his office, which happens to be about an hour from here. I haven't heard from him since. I googled his name, checked local listings, poured over the MOD website and can't come up with anything. He didn't have a phone number or address listed in his email, but he did have a MOD email address.

Maybe I'm overreacting, but something just doesn't feel right. I may set this idea aside for the time being. I'm also considering the Promise Walk for Preeclampsia instead. Any thoughts?



  1. I think go with your instincts. :)

    That charity you listed on Facebook the other day would be another great one to do a donation event for.

  2. Go with your gut,yuk. scary! Stay away from that!!

  3. I'll help with whatever you chose...I had preeclampsia (as you know) with both my boys...and both were delivered early and both NICU babies!!
