A phishing email is being circulated, claiming to be from the Council Rock School District.
The email is using the Council Rock School District logo to ask for donations and has been sent from the address “firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Council Rock School District Superintendent Dr. Andrew Sanko issued a statement Sunday warning the public that this email was not sent by the district, nor is the sender a known representative or employee of the district.
The public is being advised to exercise caution when opening the email, Sanko said.
Phishing scams are becoming increasingly common, with scammers using various tactics to trick individuals into revealing personal information or making payments.
Below is the email from Sanko:
