CGHA Volunteers and Board Members will Never Ask for Money, Gift Cards, or Personal or Financial Information via Email or Messaging
Several people have recently received emails from fraudulent individuals posing as CGHA board members. They request that the recipient make an emergency gift card purchase, initiate a money transfer, or respond to an urgent matter. These were not sent by a CGHA board member, volunteer, or staff member.

They impersonate and create a sense of urgency by using fake e-mails.

These emails are malicious and should be deleted immediately. CGHA volunteers and board members will never ask for money, gift cards, or personal or financial information via email or messaging.

These messages are easy to identify because they: come from a fake e-mail address; request unusual actions; describe unusual situations; or convey an odd message.
