From UCCA President Barry Bernstein: Good morning everyone. Apparently my email account was “hacked” and there’s a BOGUS email message requesting gift card donations with my name and UCCA on the sign-off. The subject line reads “UCCA Request“; and the message reads, “I need your assistance. University City Community Association , need some Gift cards for donation to veterans at hospice care welfare with patients and units across the community.” University City Community Association is not requesting gift card donations. This is some sort of “scam” … please do not open or respond.
