Double check the validity of an email requesting money from you. If it sounds fishy, it likely is!
We have received some recent reports about emails circulating requesting money to help someone that’s in a “bad situation.” The emails may be short, abrupt and use incorrect language or they may be lengthy, well written and tug at your heart strings using local businesses or names you are familiar with. If you question the validity of the request, don’t be afraid to ask. Check the email address (usually a give away!), logos, phone numbers, addresses etc. If it sounds fishy, it likely is. Trust your instinct!
