Families Victims of Hoax

By  | 

Someone seems to be perpetrating a hoax with families who have relatives in Iraq.

Apparently someone is calling families of deployed military people impersonating a Red Cross official, telling them their soldier is missing in action.

Red Cross spokeswoman Laura Howe is asking anyone who receives a call like this to contact the Red Cross so they can find the person responsible.

The Red Cross's toll-free number (888) 309-9679.
