SPAM email that looks to be from the PBA

19 Dec 2017 10:58 AM | Jerry Nicklow (Administrator)

 

It has come to our attention that an email was recently sent to some of our members with a PDF attachment that looked to be from the PBA.  

We want to advise that this was not sent from the PBA and the attached PDF may be harmful to your computer if clicked.

As you can see from the photo below, the email address that the message was sent from was not the PBA email address of PasadenaBusinessAssociation1@Verizon.net

When getting any suspicious emails, please be diligent about looking it over before clicking on any attachments or links.  Some of the largest cyber breaches have started with an erroneous click of an email.

The above video walks through some things to look for when reviewing an email's authenticity.  Although it is not a catch all, it can be helpful to identify potentially damaging emails.

If you have any questions on this subject or any other website and technology issues, please feel free to give me a call at 410-647-1111 or shoot me an email at jerry@huffinsurance.com.

    Hello all. To update this blog, there have been several emails going out looking like they are from our President, Doug Cashmere. Most of them either ask if you have a minute, or they come right out to ask you to buy iTunes cards and email the numbers back to him.
    These are Spam and fishing emails that you can disregard and report to your email provider as Spam or Junk.
    Thank You
