SPAM EMAIL ALERT
Many Metro MLS Members received a Spam e-mail that appears to come from the Metro MLS Administrative Staff. Please disregard this e-mail – Please do not respond!
A bogus “reply to:” e-mail address is the first sign something is wrong, other clues are:
- The missing salutation (who is the intended recipient?)
- The vague request with no details (which dates?, which amounts? Which invoices?)
- The oddly constructed sentences
How did this bad actor get my e-mail address? It’s almost impossible to tell, the source could be one or many sources including any public or private rosters, referral service databases, hacked e-mail accounts and compromised computers with contact data on them.
