We’ve recently learned of a “spoof” email being sent out in the name of Steve Greer asking the recipient to “pay the attached invoice instead of the one you recently received” or “click on a link to your fee contract”. We’ve been in contact with our IT specialists, and they’ve assured us that this situation didn’t arise from an internal breach, but rather from someone impersonating the sender to fraudulently obtain money or information from the recipient.
These types of emails often include poor grammar, misspellings, etc., that might tip you off to their questionable nature. If you receive one of these emails, you can see by hovering your mouse over the email address that the email has not come from Steve’s email address, email@example.com.
SGA doesn’t send invoices by email unless specifically requested by the client. If you receive an email from Steve, or any other email that looks suspicious, please make sure you hover over the email address to determine where the email originates. If the email address looks questionable, please immediately delete the email and do not click on any link provided in the email.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
