Many lawyers and law firms have reported receiving emails purportedly from the State Bar's President, Todd Brown. These are spoofed emails from a fake email address, which he did not send.

Here are some key steps to help you identify and avoid spoofed/phishing emails:

  1. Check the Sender's Email Address: Always verify the email address of the sender. Phishing emails often use addresses that look similar to legitimate ones but have slight variations.
  2. Look for Suspicious Content: Be cautious of unexpected requests, especially those that ask for sensitive information or urge immediate action.
  3. Verify with Known Sources: If an email seems suspicious, reach out to the sender through known and trusted contact methods to confirm its legitimacy.
  4. Report Suspicious Emails: If you receive a phishing email, report it to your IT employees immediately for further investigation.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
