Tom Bevill Raises Money for GOP from Beyond the Grave
A couple in Neel, AL reported a phone call in which a recording claiming to be Tom Bevill offered tickets to the Republican National Convention (at $500 a pop) and a chance to meet with President Bush.

"It was a recording, but I decided to listen," he said. "When it got to the end of the recording, a man got on the phone. This is when he started telling me about coming to the convention. When I told him we couldn't come, he asked me to make a smaller donation to the Republican Party."I don't know what to make of this bizarre story. It should be noted, though, that the Blankenships are the only ones to report such a call.
"It's a scam, and we want to warn people about it," Barbara Blankenship, said. "They told us we would get a plaque and mingle with the president. We're just retired people from Neel, Ala."
