'Phishing' Scam Alert
Some PBA members have reported receiving email messages with the subject line "Important Update" that appear to be from the PBA and ask members to click on a link to protect their information from future account compromise. This is not a legitimate message from the PBA. Members are advised not to click on the link or provide any information. For members who receive this type of email, known as "phishing" (a form of Internet fraud that attempts to steal personal information such as user IDs and passwords), and other email and telemarketing scams such as advance-fee schemes, get more information on the FBI website, including a link to the Internet Crime Complaint Center. Get more information on the IRS website, and click here for the Pennsylvania Lawyer magazine article "How to Avoid Becoming a Victim of Phishing."
