    Angel Society Scam??

    I received a letter stating that I had been selected to receive a valuable Personal Assistance Award, from the Angel Society out of Las Vegas. It claims to be a privately funded organization and only helps a select group of people,; 1 out of 50,000. I have no idea as to the criteria to the selection process. They claim that I will get the first installment of my award, within 2 weeks of getting my one time fee, of which is fully refundable at anytime that I become unhappy as to the way things are going. The fee is 25.00. Does anybody have any knowledge of this group or its' founder; Michelle Chalon? Any and all input will be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have also received this exact same Angel Society letter. I have no information as to the validity of the letter, but I would like to offer some observations. I have not responded to the letter; but neither have I discarded it. I am holding on to it to see if I can glean some more information about this Angel Society; also I am giving my intuition time to work.

    The content of the letter seems benign enough. They do a lot of "name dropping" of famous people, but the names they use are of people who are already deceased, and less likely to object to the use of their name.

    There just doesn't seem to be anything in the letter to really validate their offer. It is quite enigmatic.

    One thing that I do find somewhat disturbing is their request for my date and place of birth. These are items that are often used as identifying objects when accessing a bank or investment account. I am quite reluctant to give out this information without knowing a whole lot more about the people to whom I am giving the information. This could lead to identity theft.

    Another item of interest is their offer of a complete refund of the $25.00 fee. This begs the question of why would anybody be dissatisfied with such seemingly wonderful assistance they are offering.

    Anybody else out there have any input?

    Like most things, if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    The very same letter you're talking about my mother just received yesterday and she showed it to me today, i sensed right off after reading it that it smells of pure scam and if you really think about it - if places is willing to give something - then why is they always asking for you to send money or pay some sort of fee. Have you tried the BBB? I'm going to see if they may have anything and I'm going to try to see what else i can find about this organization or whatever they call themselves and the founder (Michelle Chalon). We're going to keep the letter just in case too but it's still something strange about it.

    I did some checking as i had indicated and checked the BBB to see if The ANGEL SOCIETY was registered and as it turns out they are definitely not a member so we know what that means - they should be registered and if they are legit. I also checked the Las Vegas NV BBB (they're located in Southern Nevada) and they did come up but again they are not a member and the type of business this place supposedly deal with is Financial Aid Services - Scholarships, Grants & Loans and it did indicate that there have been no customer complaints about this place within the last 3 years or since it's inception of business, whichever is less and that the Bureau has processed 0 complaints about them in the last 36 months and that The ANGEL SOCIETY is in a industry that do require them to be licensed, bonded and registered in order to lawfully do business. I've been trying to see if i can find the appropriate agency to be sure that if they are indeed legit to see what requirements are being met by them to be in business. I also checked a site called Give.org that lists every charity/organization etc. and they were not listed there either (National Charity Reports Index). I didn't find anything on it's Founder, i will continue to see what i can find, also you can try checking the BBB Serving Southern Nevada online and Give.org as i did to see what i came up with regarding them and there is a phone number listed on the page too - (702) 000-1145. I hope this info was of some help if not alot.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    Princess Di, Elvis Presley, Pope John Paul II--all human pop icons (not supernatural beings). Still, they elicit a warm emotional response from millions of people, and if this is a scam, that's a good set-up to get you to send money without thinking. Why couldn't the Angel Society just take the $25.00 out of the assistance they are giving me? As I looked over the letter, for some reason the name "Michelle Chalon" seemed familiar to me (alhough I couldn't say why). I was reminded that somehow I got on a mailing list for sales letters I get from time-to-time from psychics and astrologers. I wonder if she is one of them? In that case, the "Personal Assistance" you receive might not be money, but a psychic reading or having a horoscope cast for you (guaranteed to make you lucky in casinos, etc. etc.). That might explain the request for your date and place of birth. This is just speculation on my part, but one possible angle.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    If you do a Google using Angel Society, Las Vegas, and Michelle Chalon all at once, the only match at the top is this thread. Sounds like an advance fee scam to me. I wouldn't send them any money without some kind of documentation of who they are. Scammers are sending emails that look like they are from real existing companies offering one scam or another, but when you contact the company, they never heard of the letter you got. I get them all the time, especially from someone overseas that wants me to be their "agent" in the US to accept payments from their customers, and forward it to them in cash.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    I received this same letter last week. I did the research on the internet that led me to this group. I tried calling that number on the BBB site. It goes to a recording that says "your call cannot be completed as dialed, please check the number and dial again." What does that tell us?

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    I received a letter from The Angel Society stating that I was to be the recipient of a Personal Assistance Award and all I had to do was send in a one time fee of $25.00. I was skeptical but the wording was benign and sounded like they were offering financial assistance or a grant or something but they did not specify what kind of assistance I would receive.

    I took a chance and sent them a check, about three weeks later I received a Private Angel Report from Michelle Chalon the founder who claims to be a Clairvoyant and Angel Communicator. Long story short, the assistance she is offering is Occultic by methods such as Astrology, Tarot Cards, Numerology, Telepathy, Contact with your personal guardian Angel etc.

    I realize there are people that believe in this and would like to pursue such an endeavor, I however do not, this goes against everything I believe in and I am offended that their contact letter was so intentionally deceptive. I have written to them and requested a refund but it remains to be seen whether I receive it or not.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    I received the same "unique" letter as the restof you yesterday. what a coincidence! She may be providing some kind of clairvoyant reading or whatever, to escape prosecution, but this is definately a big rip off! You can get this much assistance at any carnival for $2.

    I recieved a letter from Michelle Chalon, The Angel Society. I think it is a scam, especially with a Las Vegas P.O. Box address. She is on the internet in French and German. My French is poor but it appears she's offering crystal therapy. Who knows what this award is supposed to be except money in her pocket.What a shame to waste your life ripping off people. This is a dark angel and I thank all of you who have written.

    Re: Angel Society Scam??

    I also recieved one of these letters. As soon as someone asks for money so they can give you something such as money the hair on the back of my neck stands up. IT"S A SCAM. Just think if she sent a letter out to just 1000 people her cost would be about $0.50 and if everyone sent her $30 as my letter requests, she would make $30,000.00 tax free. Hummmm sounds like a tidy little bit of pocket change don't you think. :
