Spam Email Circulating
28 Nov 2017 -

Please be advised that at least one member of the GAR staff is being fraudulently impersonated ("spoofed") through an email that references a closing, and asks the reader to open attached documents and mentions earnest deposit. GAR staff members are not allowed to hold a real estate license per GREC rules, so we would never be sending out emails regarding closings, earnest money, etc. 

This email appears to be spam, sent by someone "spoofing" a staff or member's email address in order to trick recipients into clicking a fraudulent link. "Spoofing" an email address - that is, pretending to send an email from another account - is easy to do. Sometimes they change the display name only, sometimes the entire "reply-to" address.

Unfortunately GAR can't control these messages.

Please ignore it, and if you did click on the link, contact your IT department so they can run a scan of your machine.

Receiving a spam email does not necessarily mean that there has been a security breach, but a good practice if you have concerns is to IMMEDIATELY CHANGE YOUR EMAIL AND COMPUTER PASSWORD(S), and do so regularly.
Sometimes these attempts are generic and easy to spot, but sometimes some effort has gone into tailoring it - for instance:

1) someone may have visited the GAR website to determine what someone's specific role is in the company, and the message may seem to pertain to their role.

2) any one of our members may have had a breach, which would have given a hacker access to their address book and the knowledge that they were associated with GAR. They could then tailor their message to a REALTOR audience.

If you think a spam email may be coming from your account, check your sent items. If you suspect your email has been hacked, immediately change your passwords and contact your IT department.

The vast majority of malware and viruses can be avoided by simply NOT clicking on suspicious links. Be suspicious of ALL links. Some rules of thumb:

- NEVER CLICK ON A LINK FROM SOMEONE YOU DO NOT KNOW

- IF YOU RECEIVE AN ATTACHMENT OR LINK FROM SOMEONE YOU DO KNOW THAT THEY DID NOT TELL YOU WAS COMING, IT'S STILL A GOOD IDEA TO VERIFY WITH THEM

- NEVER ENTER YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION INTO A FORM THAT YOU DID NOT INITIATE

- EVEN WITH TRUSTED LINKS IN EMAIL OR ON A PAGE, ALWAYS "HOVER" YOUR MOUSE OVER THE LINK AND CHECK THE STATUS BAR TO MAKE SURE IT'S LINKING TO WHAT IT SAYS IT IS
