Warning about Faked LINGUIST email
Message 1: Warning about Faked LINGUIST email
From: Michael Appleby <michaellinguistlist.org>
Subject: Warning about Faked LINGUIST email
In the past few days, we have noticed a large amount of faked
linguistlist.org email. These messages often have something similar
to 'Your account is suspended' in the subject line, and appear to
come from addresses such as 'infolinguistlist.org, 'adminlinguistlist.org',
'supportlinguistlist.org' or 'maillinguistlist.org'. None of these
addresses have ever existed. Unfortunately, spoofing email addresses
is quite easy to do, and LINGUIST List is powerless to stop it.
These messages also come with attachments. Unless you receive a
particular digest version of LINGUIST, no genuine LINGUIST List email
will ever contain an attachment. Therefore, do not open an attachment
that apparantly comes from us: it almost certainly contains a virus.
