Dear Federated Friends,
Today I was notified that someone is using my name with a ficticious email asking people to purchase gift cards. If you received this email, please delete it - this was a hack or what they call an email spoof. Also, recently I was informed that Maria Barnhart, President of Dunwoody Woman's Club was also a victim of Spoofing. Please be cautious when responding to emails asking for favors, to verify information or to download software to protect your computers. Anti-theft malware can help prevent some of the fictious emails or spoofing emails, but it's also important that you verify that the email request is coming from someone you know and their correct email. If in doubt, please email your friend/club member to make sure they made that request. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Below please find more information about email spoofing.
With Federated Friendship,
GFWC GA State President 2018-2020
