12.10.15 Public Service Announcement !!!

Heads up all IPMS / USA members. I rec'd an email from the HQ about possible data / info being compromised.

". . .It is possible that membership data, such as name, address, phone number and email addresses could be compromised. Accordingly, you are strongly advised to monitor your credit and personal information. . ."

This time of year thieves are willing to "Grinch" your Christmas Holidays. Be cautious and check your bank info daily. It could even show up weeks or months from now. BUT look for charges at places you could not or would not spend your money. If someone tries to open a credit line in your name - Heads Up!!!

I received the same email message:

Dear IPMS/USA Member,

Please excuse this use of a mass emailing, but this information needed distribution in a timely manner. This is not our normal mode of communication.

In the process of transitioning to a new Office Manager, a package containing a laptop computer with the membership database on it was lost in transit to the new interim manager. Therefore it is possible that membership data, such as name, address, phone number and email addresses could be compromised. Accordingly, you are strongly advised to monitor your credit and personal information.

Sincerely,
Ron Bell
President
IPMS/USA
