Fraudulent Email Notification

Dear IPSA Members,

The email account for IPSA's President, Dr. Judy Owens, has been hacked. The below fraudulent email was sent on her behalf. If you receive an email requesting assistance with a transfer of funds for IPSA, please delete the message. We apologize for any confusion.

Thank you,

IPSA Staff

Copy of fraudulent letter:

I need your assistance with a transfer of $2,975, for a IPSA logistics welfare Support payment. Our treasurer is indisposed and will not be able to make the transfer at the moment. I am away on a work-related assignment and I do not have my internet banking access card reader to make the transfer and it is needed urgently.

Please let me know if you can possibly help with the transfer as soon as possible because of its urgency and if I can forward you the details to transfer the payment on behalf of IPSA. I will personally reimburse you immediately I'm back in the office while I reconcile it with our treasurer when he’s back in office.

Rest assured the amount will be reimbursed to you as soon as I am in office and can access my bank account for international transfers.

Look forward to your return email for transfer details if you can help.


Best wishes,
