The American Red Cross is urging healthy individuals to give blood to restock the shelves for patients battling disease and facing the unexpected.
Nashville, TN – The FBI Nashville Resident Agency has seen a recent increase in phone calls that spoof the office’s phone number as part of a Social Security scam. The callers will often “spoof,” or fake, the FBI Nashville Resident Agency’s phone number, 615.232.7500, so the call appears to be coming from the FBI on the recipient’s caller ID.
In this scam, fraudulent callers inform the victim that their Social Security number has been suspended and there is a warrant out for their arrest.
Nashville, TN – On Monday, June 1st, 2020 the Nashville Predators Foundation will join forces with the American Red Cross to host eight blood drives throughout Tennessee and Kentucky. Each drive will run from 12:00pm-7:00pm CT.

The American Red Cross now faces a severe blood shortage due to an unprecedented number of blood drive cancellations during the coronavirus pandemic, so any assistance in promoting this drive would be greatly appreciated.
