Hacker steals Fournier 150 email address
Anyone who gets an email claiming to be from the Fournier 150 Committee and asking for a donation should trash it right away. It is a fake.
Roxanne Ryan, one of the committee members, says that a hacker has stolen the group’s email address and is now using it to send out phony requests for donations to help with costs for the 150th anniversary celebration for the Parish of Fournier.
Ryan herself just received such a phony email. A warning about the hack was posted on the group’s Facebook page.
With the end of the year close at hand, the Fournier 150 committee is winding up business and has no real need to keep the email address. There will be an end-of-season celebration supper, with a live comedy skit, at the Saint-Bernardin Hall on Nov. 25, and the group will post details on how to get tickets on its Facebook page.
Ryan is trying to contact Yahoo!, the email service the group uses, to both cancel the Fournier 150 email account and also warn the company about the hacker. Quelqu’un a volé l’adresse électronique du comité de Fournier 150 et envoie maintenant de faux courriels demandant des dons pour soutenir les célébrations du 150e anniversaire de la paroisse de Fournier.
