It is ok for a non-mason to represent themselves as a freemason.


FALSE

Representing yourself as a member of an organization to which you do not belong may be considered to be fraud and even punishable by law in some areas. This is a result of the often close relationship with many fraternal organizations and insurance benefits. Even though most grand lodges do not offer insurance, the laws still apply. If your father was a mason and you are not, you may be tempted to wear his ring. Be aware that he would definitely disapprove of this.

I received my ring today. It is absolutely beautiful, and is well worth the slight delay I had in receiving it. Thank you so much! I will wear it proudly, and tell all brothers who ask, what an upright quality company you are. Thank you again.

Fraternally,

Michael” Brother Michael, Lawrenceville, GA
