Bridge clubs targeted by email fraudsters

Last summer we sent all EBU bridge clubs an email warning of "phishing" attempts that seemed to be aimed at bridge clubs. We also included an article about this in last summer's Club Management Focus. We have now had a more recent report of one very sophisticated such attempt, so we would advise our clubs to be very wary and not to send money to anyone on the basis of what may appear to be an email from a club committee member, without first confirming that it did actually come from that person.
