The American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) has recently been notified of a fictitious fund-raising advertisement circulating through the AAFS membership. The fund-raising email, “Help Support Mercy,” in which donations are requested through Fundly.com was NOT organized by the Forensic Sciences Foundation (FSF) as the email implies.

Please be advised the email and advertising are fraudulent. Fundly.com has been notified and instructed to remove any and all references to the AAFS and the FSF.

Thank you.

The AAFS IT Staff
