On March 12, 2017 fraudulent emails were sent to a large number of people with the subject “Private Message From WVSAO” including a “Click here to Login to view the document now.” link that takes you to a phishing website. The email address “Desk@wvsao.gov” was spoofed using a fraudulent email server.
If you received this email please delete it immediately. If you clicked on the link and entered any information please change your passwords immediately.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Kirk.Rector@wvsao.gov.
