UPHA Scam Emails



Dear UPHA Members

It has been brought to our attention that scammers are impersonating our UPHA President, Cindy Mugnier in a new phishing scheme. The email says the UPHA wants you to send gift cards or money for Veterans in Hospice and COVID-19 prevention items. The “scammer” has set up an email address using Cindy’s name and a fake email address for the donations. These requests are not from Cindy or UPHA.

Any appeal for donations from the UPHA would request checks be made payable to the UPHA Foundation and sent to the UPHA office or request the donations be made by using the “donate” button on the UPHA website.

If you get an unexpected email that asks you to reply – or call or click a link – to give somebody personal or financial information, don’t. DO NOT open or forward the email, do not open any attachments, do not click any links that appear in the message, do not respond to the email.

Visit the Federal Trade Commission website to learn how to recognize and avoid phishing scams. https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-recognize-and-avoid-phishing-scams
