Good afternoon all,

If you have received an email from a company called PROLUDIC.   PLEASE DELETE and do not open/click view invoice.  This is fraudulent/SPAM/Phishing.  Example of the email that seemed to have gone to DEC@legion.ca email is below.

Just a reminder if you receive an email with similar wording such as the ones below, the chances are high that these are Phishing/Fraudulent/SPAM emails and should be deleted right away.

"Click here to get your refund"

"Your account is out of date"

“View Invoice”

“Click here to view details”

Here are a few ways to spot a phishing/SPAM attack:

Is the information request legit? Your bank will never send you an email, or call you on the phone, asking you to disclose personal information such as your password, credit or debit card number, or your mother’s maiden name.

Does the email have a sense of urgency? Warnings that your account will be closed or your access limited if you don’t reply is a telltale sign of a phishing scam.

Does the email look professional? While some fraudulent emails may look professional at first glance, if you look more closely you may notice spelling and grammatical errors, unusual language or branding that isn’t quite right.  Always look at the originating email address for clues.

Fraudulent emails may not be personalized and instead, are addressed in general terms, such as "Dear valued customer." Targeted phishing scams do exist though and can be personalized.
