Dear HCF Friends,
If you have received a copy of the email below, please know it is fraud. It does not claim to be part of HCF but does try to appear as a request from Thrangu Rinpoche and uses a banner from the Rinpoche.com website.
This was not organized by Thrangu Rinpoche or released by Rinpoche.com; and is not a real case in the hospital in Oregon.
Please be alert to and question any email solicitation claiming to be connected with Thrangu Rinpoche and his website that you do not recognize as his legitimate work and organizations.
If you do receive questionable notices, please report it to Lee Miracle to follow up with on
I hope this notice has been received before anyone responded to it.
With best wishes for safe communications,

HERE IS AN EXAMPLE OF THE TYPE OF FRADULENT EMAILS THAT ARE BEING SENT AROUND:
From: Thrangu Rinpoche <email@example.com>
Subject: Nathan Needs You
Date: October 10, 2020 at 10:08:25 AM PDT
One of our members is in dire need of the entire Thrangu Rinpoche help and it will really be appreciated if we all can join hands together to support her family in any way. A fundraising campaign has been created and we are counting on everyone. Below is the campaign, thank you for your time and support.
Brenda would like you to
Support Nathan Recovery
by making a donation and helping spread the word
Nathan is a 3 year old boy who has been diagnosed with Fanconi anemia; a very rare and dangerous type of anemia. This causes him to have physical abnormalities, shortness of breath and nose bleeding.
Nathan has to be transferred to the OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Oregon. It's going to be a long, painful and expensive process. He will need to undergo a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible and if he doesn't get the procedure done, we will lose him. The entire process will cost $62,000 and we have been able to raise $24,300.
We are asking for your financial support as both me and my husband are self-employed, leaving us with poor insurance coverage. We are knocking on your generous heart to support us financially in this journey and any amount given will truly make a huge impact. Most importantly, we also hope you can whisper a prayer for our little boy.
