A.G. Schneiderman Issues Alert On Phishing Scam Targeting New York Attorneys

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today issued a consumer alert following recent reports that hackers are targeting attorneys in New York pretending to be representatives of his office. Attorneys are receiving email claiming that their business was subject of a complaint for which they have 10 days to respond. The email includes a hyperlink to the “complaint”–do NOT click on the link, as it goes to a website that installs malicious software on the person’s computer. Read the Attorney General’s alert here
