The Moses Lake senior citizens center said several elderly residents recently brought in letters saying they were FROM the senior center asking for money.

It was a four-page document claiming to be from "The Seniors Center" and warning that the Social Security Trust Fund was in danger. Donations were needed for grassroots politicking to save social security.

Recipients were told they were chosen to represent Grant County, were asked to send in $22 and make copies of the letter and send to friends, instructing them to send in $22.

The center director contacted police.
