Gift Card Scam Alert – Gift Cards (Donation)

Share

From UCCA President Diane Ahern: Hello University City neighbors. Apparently my email account was “hacked” and there’s a BOGUS email message requesting gift card donations with my name as the sign-off. The subject line reads “Gift Cards (Donation)” or something similar. The message asks the email recipient to purchase gift cards on my behalf. 

This is some sort of “scam” … please do not open or respond. University City Community Association is not sending out email requests for gift cards. If you receive this email, please let us know at UniversityCityNews@gmail.com

Wishing you a healthy, safe, and scam-free holiday weekend.
