Email Scams

Don’t click on links in alarming emails.

Some residents recently received a nice-looking email purporting to be from Microsoft. Update your email account, it reads, or you won’t be able to login. Just click the (free) link below. DON’T BITE.

There has also been a recent spate of emails purporting to come from FHA Board members asking people to get in touch or take some other action on an urgent basis.

If you’re on a desktop, you can hover your mouse over the sender to see if it’s real. But remember, it’s always better not to click on links in emails or take other requested actions unless you’re absolutely sure that the email is genuine. Go onto the purported sender’s website from your internet browser (not the link in the email), or write a new email (not a reply) to the purported sender – if it’s a real message, you’ll find it that way.
