Hi folks, just a PSA to inform you of a phishing attack against amateur 
radio organizations (at least). Please do not respond to these emails. Many 
of us in the LARC have seen the same email seemingly authored by Mike 
Shreve, our president, but it's a scam. Not only is LARC and FCG being hit, 
but also is PCARS and NFDXA, at least.

Keep your guard up...

Best regards,
