!There is a new spam email going around claiming to be from your domain tech support and asking you to click on a link. See example below.

Spam emails such as this are PHISHING SCAMS! Such emails are used to commit identity theft, or compromise users' machines or personal information.

stopEmbedding your domain makes this email look more legit, but it is NOT. If you get this email DO NOT click on the links. DO NOT reply!

Any email address can be SPOOFED (imitated). When in doubt, check first!

NEVER click links provided in emails or pop-up messages asking you to verify your information.

If you receive an email that appears "phishy" and are unsure if it's legitimate, and it is not listed below, please report it to me.

Also note that any legitimate email from Kahl Consultants will always include my name and address at the bottom.

All the best,
Alex Kahl
