BEWARE OF EMAIL SCAMS

On yesterday, several people in the community received an email yesterday from "Maggie Cole" indicating a desire to place an order for a number of items.

PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THE EMAIL.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION

The purpose of these types of scams is to get you to respond and provide personal information which can then be used to hack into your accounts.

The EMAIL IS NOT FROM SOUL PURPOSE or from anyone associated with the company.

OTHER EMAIL SCAMS/VIRUSES: If you receive any email which only contains a link, there is a high probability that it is a virus.  Even if it looks as if it was sent by someone you know (which is how the viruses work), do not click the link as it will open a virus on your computer.  You should delete it immediately.  If you're concerned the email my have been legitimate, contact the sender directly and ask them to resend.   Remember, better safe than sorry!
