Email Scam Notice

Hello AOCOO-HNS Members,

We are reaching out to all of you to talk about email scams that come from the Colleges leadership. Please disregard emails asking for gift cards, or other strange requests. These emails are scammers and need to be deleted immediately. Whatever you do, please do not click on links inside of such emails and do not reply to these emails. I found some tips that might help you recognize scammer/phishing emails, they are:

  • Look at the email address, not just the sender.
  • The domain name is misspelt.
  • The email is poorly written.
  • It includes suspicious attachments or links.
  • The message creates a sense of urgency.

Thank you for allowing us to stewart your organization,

Ralph McClish, Mackenzie Enriquez, and Gerald Lovato
