Phishing Email?

Posted by: Bonnie Bruno on 01/19/2013 - 11:07 AM

I have received 2-3 emails over the past couple of weeks, saying my FAA account will be closed if I don't provide my mailing address for FAA to send me a 1099. When I registered with FAA I supplied that info. My ISP tells me it's a phishing email.

The first email said I would be cut off by January 10th. I'm still here, obviously.
I got another yesterday, and sent my mailing address re. a contact form here on FAA to technical support, rather than via the email route. I did notice that my public contact info does not list my home/mailing address, but I chose to keep that private.

Has anyone else received these?

Check in your Behind the Scenes and make sure these three areas are correctly filled out

Contacto Information
Payment Information
Tax Information

If they are then you are fine but, we did send out some emails asking people to update these details

Thanks, Elizabeth. I checked and yes, it has my address.
(I looked in my Junk folder on email and there were three other emails sent, all saying that my FAA account would be closed on Jan. 10th if I didn't send my address. That's why I thought it must be spam.)

Looks like I'm fine, then, since my address is there.
