ABPA Phishing Scam Warning


Dear ABPA Members,

We are writing to inform you of a recent phishing scam targeting ABPA members. The scam artist is using the name Heather Hammond and is posing as the new ABPA “Lead Accountant.” Please be advised that Heather Hammond is not affiliated with the ABPA, and any communication from this individual should be considered fraudulent.

To protect yourself and your business, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Verify Email Addresses: Always ensure that emails are coming from addresses you recognize and have dealt with previously. Official ABPA communications will come from our known and trusted domains.
  2. Be Cautious with Unsolicited Requests: Do not respond to unsolicited requests for sensitive information, financial transactions, or personal details.
  3. Look for Red Flags: Be on the lookout for signs of phishing, such as urgent or threatening language, spelling and grammatical errors, and unexpected attachments or links.
  4. Contact Us Directly: If you receive an email from “Heather Hammond” or any other suspicious communication, do not respond or click on any links. Instead, contact us directly at “info@autobpa.com” to verify the authenticity of the message.

Your security is our top priority, and we are taking all necessary steps to address this issue. We appreciate your vigilance and cooperation in ensuring the safety of our community.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Best regards,
