Please read the note from Director of Compliance & Provider Relations Julie Tyler, below, regarding spoofing emails you might have received--and contact her at 419-668-8840, extension 1449, if you have questions!
It appears that many of the HCBDD staff email accounts are being spoofed, and various people are receiving emails from the multiple “spoofed”/”phishing” accounts requesting payment for an invoice, receipt for your payment, etc. We have notified IT, and please know that our accounts have not been hacked. I wanted to reach out and let you know that any legitimate email from a HCBDD employee will have their “email signature” as seen below which will include our name, title, address, phone number, and HCBDD logo. The fraudulent or spoofed emails typically just list our name and email address and may include a phone number that does not match the number below. If you receive a spoofed/phishing email, please do not click on any links or invoices. We will not send any invoice or receipt of payment to you via email.
Sorry for any inconvenience this has already caused.
