New Email Scam Alert!Article: June 10, 2016 | ArticlesOBLIC Alerts
Various bar associations around the country have been alerted to an email scam that references in the subject line something similar to “Ethics Complaint” or “Bar Complaint”, or words to that effect. It may also contain links or a return address referencing “complaints.”
DO NOT click on these links as they appear to be a “spearphishing” attempt to put ransomware on an affected computer. Delete such email immediately. If you receive such an email and need further assistance, please contact OBLIC.
