It has been brought to our attention that someone is using NFDA staff email addresses to send members and non-members an email with fake, and possibly malicious, invoices or documents attached.
While NFDA does occasionally send invoices and other documents through email, most often they are at the request of the recipient. If you receive an unexpected invoice or document from NFDA, instead of opening the attachment, please contact the staff member in a separate email to confirm the veracity of the email you received.
Other ways to spot malicious or phishing emails:
- Your name in the salutation is not quite right, for example a user name (first initial and last name) instead of a real name
- The email address in the “From” isn’t quite an NFDA email address
- The signature is plain and doesn’t include NFDA Logo or other items you would normally see
In general, if you ever find any email even slightly suspicious, it is best to contact the source directly rather than to reply to the email or open any attachments.
