There have recently been fraudulent emails (also known as "phishing" emails) which are being sent by criminals that may put you at risk.
The fraudulent email usually mimics a company or financial institution's website. Please be advised that these are neighborhood companies which you may have an account in. You may or may not do business with the company or financial institution used on the scam. The perpetrators send e-mails to thousands of individuals, hoping to hit on a person who has an account or does business with the named company. The e-mail generally asks you to click a link back to a web site and provide, update or confirm sensitive personal information. To bait you, they may allude to an urgent or threatening matter concerning your account.
The purpose of this letter is to provide public awareness of this type of unsolicited e-mail, which seems to be affecting many consumers.
