Phishing scams and Institute policy on emailing our Members and Fellows (11 May 2016)

We would like to warn you of a recent and very credible phishing attempt on Institute members.
The Institute’s database security has NOT been breached as it appears that only members who have their email address in the public domain, such as branch committee members with their email address on the Institute or branch websites, have been sent the phishing email and not all members.
The subject of the phishing email is “IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL MEMBERS” and appears to be from Julie Lithgow. It requests the member to click on a link which takes them to a false log in page.
Please do NOT click on this link and delete this email immediately.
Phishing attempts are not uncommon in the shipping industry so we would ask all members to be cautious when opening links in emails.
We will be sending ALL Institute members the attached email warning them of this phishing attempt and posting it on our website.
Please also post the attached message on your local website if your branch has a website.
Due to the timing of this phishing attempt we have decided to post membership subscription invoices to those members that we invoice from head office instead of emailing them as originally planned. Invoices are due out next week.
Please do not hesitate to contact this office if you have any questions or concerns.
