Possible scam emails appearing to be from SSM Chamber of Commerce

scam alert

We have been advised that this afternoon a few of our members have received an email message that appears to be ‘spoofing’ a Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce e-mail address. Email spoofing is the creation of email messages with a forged sender address.  In this case, it looks like the message originates at a @ssmcoc.com address, however it does not.

The subject line of the message is: Help “Support Logan Recovery”.

Aside from the e-mail address, the content of the message is clearly not aimed at Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce members but to subscribers of the Scuttlebutt Sailing News, complete with that news organization’s logo. The GoFundMe link in the message clearly directs to a paypal account.

If you receive a message matching this description, please delete it immediately.

This message did not originate from the Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce.
