Beware of Phishing - Don't Click

Poppers - Apparently at least one POP member has received a suspicious email purporting to be from Kathy Schwartz, asking them to click on a link. If you received such a message, do not click on the link, and delete the message. This is a common way to try to hack into peoples' computers to get personal information. I've seen a few of these lately, supposedly from people I know, so just beware. And if you did get such an email purporting to be from Kathy, you might contact her and let her know, so she knows if it's a problem or just a one-off.
