Recently, IEEE has become aware of email scams or phishing attempts where IEEE volunteers are requested to send money or to provide access to sensitive information which the attackers may then use to conduct fraudulent or malicious activities. Attackers may send you email that looks like it is coming from legitimate sources, using actual names and email addresses of high-level IEEE leaders like Society Presidents, Section Chairs, and Conference Organizers. For example, the attacker may pose as an IEEE volunteer and ask you to transfer money or to reply with bank account information. In these situations, the email address used by the attacker may even look like it is coming from a legitimate @ieee.org address or an address you may be familiar with.
If you receive an email, call or text requesting that you take an action, even if it is consistent with the responsibilities of your current IEEE leadership role, but you are unsure if it is legitimate, please notify your supporting IEEE business unit and make them aware of the situation.
If you have questions or need assistance, please visit our FAQs on Phishing Attempts or reach out to the Contact Center where a service professional can assist you.
