[Blueboard] FRAUDULENT EMAILS

Reminder to all users:

There seems to be a new email going around purporting to
come from Metrobank and asking people to provide their
online credentials in order to join a lottery.

While most of us would like nothing better than to win
some cash, emails like these (and others not necessarily
lottery-related), do NOT originate from the institutions
shown in the sender address or body.  Their only purpose
is to gather personal information and credentials (known
as phishing) which will in turn be used for ILLEGAL
purposes.

Please exercise care and common sense when you receive
emails like these.

Thank you for your attention.
