Fraud alert: Phishing email sent to SBM members
The State Bar of Michigan has received reports of a fraudulent email being sent to Michigan attorneys. The emails are from a “Jacqui Salmon” (salmon @access-americanbar.org) with the subject “Request for Info – State Bar of Michigan.” The email is believed to be a phishing scam to solicit personal information. DO NOT respond to the email and DO NOT submit any personal information. A contact number included in the email is to a nonworking phone number. The email uses the name of an individual who previously worked for the American Bar Association and cites the State Bar of Michigan to try to trick recipients into replying or otherwise cooperating.
The State Bar of Michigan posts information about scams known to be targeting Michigan attorneys on its website at www.michbar.org/generalinfo/scamalerts. Additional information about what to do if you receive or are the victim of a scam is also available.
If you have questions or concerns about the validity of an email, please contact us at SBMforU@michbar.org.
