PHISHING SCAM WARNING FOR CHAMBER MEMBERS
The Phelan Chamber of Commerce is warning chamber members and the public about a phishing scam.
Several Chamber members have reported receiving an email asking them to download and review a document hosted on Transferbigfiles.com. At first glance, the email appears to be from the Phelan Chamber of Commerce. However, upon further investigation of the sender, the email address is from "user(@)transferbigfiles(dot)com" and not the Phelan Chamber with a reply-to email address from an unknown individual with a Gmail account. This email was not sent by the Phelan Chamber of Commerce and is a scam.
The Phelan Chamber of Commerce occasionally sends email blasts, invoices as attachments, and related correspondence. Emails from the Chamber will come from "firstname.lastname@example.org" or end in @phelanchamber.info.
Individuals who receive emails that appear to be from the chamber but look suspicious should contact the chamber at 760-868-3291 or email@example.com.
