MDNA NEWS

EMAIL SPOOFING ALERT
It has been brought to our attention that there is email spoofing happening using Mark@mdna.org. Be cautious when opening any unexpected emails that show they are from Mark@mdna.org. Do not click on any links or send any personal information if you receive an email from that address. The MDNA IT consultants are aware that someone is spoofing this email address and have changed Mr. Robinson’s email address to mark.robinson@mdna.org to try and stay one step ahead of the scammers. But also please note that any association wide emails that go out come from our office email account or constant contact and under no circumstances will an email from anyone at MDNA be asking for personal information via an email. Additionally any links that we are bringing to the attention of the membership can be accessed through our website.

Our IT consultants also reassured us that email spoofing does not mean that our systems have been hacked. Spoofing real email addresses is surprisingly easy, and part of why phishing is such a problem.
