Beware of Email Scams

Remember this: Never respond to emails (or phone calls) asking you for login information or any personal information whatsoever.

Today, one of our Village volunteers, Wayne Fisher, was affected by an email scam that caused a hacker to send out e-mails from his account to his contact list saying "Can you do me a favor?" and subsequently asking for a gift card.

Typically, if one of your e-mail contacts emails you asking for a vague "favor" it is almost always a scam. When in doubt, call the person to confirm the request.

And if you received this email from Wayne, please do not respond and simply delete it. But his experience is a good reminder that scammers are always active and always looking to capture your personal information.
