Notice to Visitors of the Lions Clubs of the British Isles Website and Social Media sites

Please be advised that we (Lions Clubs of the British Isles) will never ask anyone seeking a grant from Lions Clubs International or from any Lions Club to make any payment to secure a Lions grant.

Anyone contacting you on the telephone, by letter or online and offering a Lions grant in exchange for a fee or advance payment to secure a Lions grant is doing so fraudulently, and you should not proceed with the matter.

BEWARE OF SCAMS!

We have been made aware of scams and fraudulent use of the Lions Clubs International (LCI) or Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) name or logo, or other trusted and well-known names.

The goal of these types of scams is to trick people into revealing personal and financial information about themselves, which can then be used to commit identity theft.

Please note that Lions Clubs International – nor anyone purporting as a Lions Club or part of the Lions Clubs International Foundation – makes cold (unsolicited) calls asking for financial donations, nor do we contact anyone through their personal Facebook accounts asking for money.

If you receive a suspicious email, text, or social media message, please follow the LCI guidelines via this link: https://www.lionsclubs.org/en/blog/protect-yourself-from-scams

If you have recently received a suspicious message via facebook, please report it directly to Facebook. See: How to report things on Facebook.
