Hi everyone,

It has come to our attention that some members of the Bridges community may be receiving fraudulent emails.  I won't include a copy here, but roughly speaking the message claims to be from the "housing bureau of Bridges Seoul 2014" and requests that you send your credit card information because of a computer malfunction.

If you haven't seen a message like that one, great -- either you were spared, or your spam filters are working well.  If you *have* seen it, you don't need to do anything in particular; but *please* do not respond to it!  To be clear, the Bridges Organization will never ask you to send us your credit card information by email.  That's inherently insecure, and you should basically never do it with any party.
