E-mail SCAM ALERT!

15 September 2023
Email scams are all too commonplace these days. BE ON ALERT!!
Just this week, Harper Community Chamber of Commerce has been targeted by two different ones. Scary part is, they do not appear to be random!
An email received earlier was made to appear as though it was the president, asking me, a director, to assist our treasurer with a payment, and addressing each person by name, needing a payment to be made using Venmo or Zelle, something we do not do! The email was from a made up account made to appear it was from Mr. Urban, so it is not a matter of our email being HACKED. (Still a good idea to change passwords now & then).
Point being, IGNORE UNUSUAL REQUESTS FOR HELP, ESPECIALLY INVOLVING PAYMENTS!
**(Similar incidents occurred involving my church and pastor's name about three years ago. No harm was done, as all attempts were recognized as being phony.)
METHODS SHOULD EXIST TO MAKE IT EASY TO TRACE THE PERSON WHO CREATES AN EMAIL ADDRESS!
