Is this a scam?  Did not originate from CPC and no name I can confirm as a member.

Dear Member,

One of our members is in dire need of the entire Cascade Paragliding Club help to save his son who is critically ill and needs to be operated urgently. It will be appreciated if we all can join hands together as one family and save his son. A fundraising campaign has been created and we are relying on everyone's support to help him raise the funds needed. Below is the fundraising campaign, thank you for your support in advance. No amount is too small and any amount donated out of the kindness of your heart will be highly appreciated.

Connor would like you to support
Nathan Recovery Journey
by making a donation and helping
 spread the word. 

I'm trying to raise $18,000
$8,250 RAISED   /   86 SUPPORTERS   /   18 DAYS LEFT 
Nathan is a 3 year old boy who was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, which causes a tumor to grow in his brain.

This tumor is growing daily and needs to be removed urgently before it eventually grows into his spinal cord. An operation costing $18,000 is available privately and we have been able to raise $8,250. This operation will not only laser the tumor away, but it will also reduce the risk of Nathan needing further treatment.

Nathan wants to be a doctor when he grows up. Please help us raise the money for his operation so that he can live a normal life and fulfill his dream.

Please share your prayers and financial support to encourage Nathan in this battle. We understand money can be tight, but any amount you're able to give will truly make a huge impact.

What is GoFundMe?
GoFundMe is a personal fundraising website that has helped thousands of people raise millions of dollars for the things that matter to them most.

If you look at the address properties, it is not coming from the cpc club email. It looks like a scam.

Definitely not from CPC email. No idea where it came from. I did get an email to our inbox as well, which I marked spam

It's interesting, because it is just an e-mail designed to look like a CPC one. The text of the e-mail and the use of the CPC logo suggests it was all hand crafted rather than extracted automatically from information on the google group (the CPC logo isn't part of the group info). The group only provided a list of e-mail addresses. Given the effort involved, someone must think paraglider pilots are especially dumb!

Like Etch, I've marked the e-mail itself as spam.

Definitely a scam. It should be reported to PayPal. If you have given money to this thing, I believe PayPal has an easy processes to get your money back just like credit cards have fraud protection.

If its a scam they did a fairly good job with it.  The email came from a legit source, and only the display name matches the club name, which is why it got past some spam filters.  The images are also hosted over at amazon, so depending on your mail service they don't get blocked - came through fine on my gmail account and google does a really good job with that stuff.  The sketchy part is the donate link, which doesn't lead to gofundme at all, but https://frus-gofun.artsmile.org.uk/ which then redirects you to paypal so you can give them money.  I'll give it a 7/10, they're probably raking in cash with this one.
