Harmful email phishing campaign received by some ACP members
There is a harmful email phishing campaign circulating that appears to be from ACP President Dr. Stephen Hudis requesting gift card donations for veterans. Some ACP members reported receiving the email, so we want to assert that this message did not come from Dr. Hudis or the ACP, and the College would never solicit members in this manner.
If you happened to receive the email do not engage, instead report it as spam or contact your email provider.
Unfortunately scams like this are very common especially during this time of year, so it is essential to review best practices for recognizing potentially harmful emails. You can read more on how to protect yourself from these malicious attacks via the Federal Trade Commission website: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-recognize-and-avoid-phishing-scams#recognize
Being actively alert against these harmful tactics will ensure that your information remains safe, so we encourage you to be mindful when opening emails even if they appear to come from trusted sources.
If you are ever unsure about an email from the College or one of our leaders, you can always reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
