Increase in scam emails received by some ACP members
Some ACP members have reported an increase in fraudulent emails appearing to come from the ACP, specifically soliciting donations through GoFundMe, PayPal, or other non-ACP websites.
Please know the College would never solicit members in this manner.
If you happened to receive an email like this do not engage, instead report it as spam or contact your email provider.
Unfortunately scams like this are very common, 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.
