Phishing warning from WBKA

Someone is taking the email addresses from the WBKA web site and sending out phishing emails, trying the get people to make payments.

This happens from time to time – one of the snags of publishing email addresses on the web.

Usually if you check the senders address you can see that the email isn’t coming from the person named at the top of the email.
