Complaint Review: National Academy of Medicine - Washington DC District of Columbia
National Academy of Medicine Reverend Doctor K.A.J Lord, M.D., Doctor of Divinity, Member of the B oard of Directors, signs letter inviting you to Accept Award and Appointment for $100-500 annual membership and $70 per plaque, and $15 for shipping for 3 different plaques, with no contact number provided or website to Washington DC, District of Columbia
I did not find any contact number on google search to support this academy's existence. The name sounded legitimate, National Academy of Medicine, but it doesn't appear on Google's search engine, and the address is a virtual office address on the letterhead:
2100 M Street, NW, Suite 170-342, Washington, DC 20037. The letter signed by Dr. Reverend KA.J Lord, MD does not exist on Google. Other legitimate academies do show up. His letter is very nice and invites you to be honored and awarded a distinguished award and acceptance into their Academy based on some national convention in Las Vegas in which your name was submitted on June 25-28 in Baton Rouge (no year stated).
There is also no contact number listed, nor website anywhere on the letter head, making this a suspicious letter of intent. Then, on the second page after you accept award and appointment, and date it, he asks for the address you want your plaque delivered, name and degree ingraved, and number of plaques ordered. Then, asks for registration fee of $100 for 2 years, $200 for 5 years and $500 for lifetime membership. Then, states to enclose $7o for each plaque, and $15 for shipping per plaque(s):
1. The Distinguished Award for Excellence by the Nathional Academy of Medicine
2. The Appointment to the National Academy of Medicine Scientific Advisory Board
3. The Appointment as Distinguished Consultant to the National Academy of Medicine
Then, it says to mail your check to the above address. Again, no contact number was provided to verify the authenticity of the Academy, Dr. Lord, website, or that it just may be fraudulent and extortionist in nature to begin with, especially if it's not showing up as a legitimate Medical Academy on Google as such.
So, they are preying on doctors, and sending out phony letters from LAS VEGAS! Not from their Washington DC. PO Box Number of their virtual office. So, therefore, this is also MAIL FRAUD since they obtained my address by some mean, and are sending it to hospital addresses on September 6, 2012.
