Attention: Scam Alert
Tuesday, August 20, 2019
Today we were alerted by a UUMA member that they had received an email from someone claiming to be Stripe (a payment processor) and that a payment had not gone through for the UUMA.
Tips for checking if something is spam:
- Make sure it comes from the actual organization or company
- Check for logo continuity - often the logo in the scam emails doesn't look like the logo for the actual company
- Always, before sending any money anywhere check to see that the recipient has actually asked for it directly
If you get something from the UUMA that feels like it could be a scam feel free to reach out to UUMA Administrator Hannah Franco-Isaacs at firstname.lastname@example.org
