    • DavidCO is right, there is no accusation to be made, but it's unusual and you can inquire about it.   I would email the dadASM and scout and say I just received nine MB cards from Scout and they're all the same merit badge counselor and all signed the same day, this is really unusual, could you tell me more about this.  Then see what they have to say. Maybe an uncle or cousin is actually a MBC for the badges in the other council, and maybe there's a half decent explanation for it all.  The best way to approach it is to refrain from making any kind of accusation or insinuation that anybody did anything wrong, but rely on the BSA's rules that MBs can only be approved by a registered MBC.  The MBC can be from another council, but you need to be able to verify that in order to represent them as completed in reporting them to your council for recording.
