Malware Email Attempts Flood Area Businesses | News

Spam emails are being sent to many business in our area, including this newspaper. 

The emails have become an annoyance of late.   This prompted the Executive Director of the Chamber, Sweetwater and Nolan County, Karen Hunt  to issue clarification: 

“It has been brought to my attention that a few have received email from me with the subject seeming to have something to do with leadership class or a leadership participant invoice due.

DO NOT OPEN any attachments for an invoice or the leadership schedule or whatever the bait might be.

We do not send invoices by email unless we are contacted to do so. Invoices are still sent through the USPS mail. Also, Leadership Sweetwater and Future Sweetwater continue to be on hold until we feel it is safe to proceed and the organizations and facilities involved are comfortable with resuming the program.

Please note that my email address should appear as [email protected] In two incidents thus far, my email address has not been correct. Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or comments.”
