CAUTION: Human Rights USA Name Being Used in Internet Scheme (12/7/2009)

It has recently come to our attention that the names of the World Organization for Human Rights USA and at least one of our staff members are being used in an internet scheme designed to deceive individuals into sending their personal information (including passport numbers) to a designated e-mail address. While we do host events from time to time, we have no conferences planned in the near future and are in no way affiliated with this scheme, which we believe to be a scam or fraud.

If you have already sent your personal information to the designated e-mail address, we suggest you use this link to report the fraud to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about whether an email message that appears to be from Human Rights USA is authentic.
