WARNING:  Email Phishing and spoof emails aim to obtain your secure information, passwords, or account numbers. These emails use deceptive means to try and trick you, like forging the sender’s name. Often, they ask for the reader to reply, send money to someone in distress, or click on a weblink to steal personal information.

Beware of a current email scam that seems to be targeted toward Regional Officers and Representative Council members of IBS. The subject line is:  INTERNATIONAL BIOMETRIC SOCIETY and the email appears to be written by President Elizabeth Thompson, seeking money for one of our members. Please do not respond to or have anything to do with the person sending this email. Many of our regional officers have been contacted already by an unknown person. It’s often difficult to be sure if something is real or fake since scammers adjust their tactics. So, if you have the slightest doubt, do not send information.

Never send other IBS members sensitive information like your password, bank account, or credit card details. If information is required to confirm or maintain your account, you will be asked to visit www.biometricsociety.org to log into your account securely.

If you detect suspicious activity, please be wary. Never provide personal information to another IBS member.
