Russell County Chamber of Commerce members are receiving fake emails.
The following is an email to all chamber members from the Russell Co. Chamber of Commerce:
It has been brought to my attention that several businesses have received FAKE emails claiming to have originated from this office and stating that an invoice is attached or that your payment is late. Those emails did NOT come from this Chamber office.
I am SO thankful that you have been diligent in checking the email address and/or phone number and seeing that it isn’t a local address/number. I have contacted Duo County and they are aware of this problem, but unfortunately, there isn’t much that can be done other than continue to be aware before opening any email and/or attachment.
Please continue to be mindful of all emails that you receive as I will soon be sending out information regarding membership for 2019 with an application attached. I will only send an invoice if you request one.
