Suspicious Emails About African School for the Deaf

Good afternoon Freecyclers,

Earlier today, one of our members received a suspicious email asking for a donation to a school for the deaf in Sierra Leone. This message was supposedly sent by one of our former Freecycle.org members, but the message used the recipient's Freecycle.org user name.

If you received a similar email, simply forward it to AlexandriaVA@mod.freecycle.org so that we may get a better idea of what we are dealing with. We are looking into whether the Freecycle.org site has been compromised, the former member's email was hacked, or if the email was legitimate. There is no need to panic.

That said, please do not respond to any such message or click on any links it contains. Just forward it to the email address above. If we find that this is a Freecycle.org problem, we will pass the messages on to Freecycle's tech team for further scrutiny.

Thank you, Happy Freecycling, and Happy New Year!
