Suspicious email and fraud alert
19 February 2021
We provide an alert concerning a suspicious email apparently originating from The Standard Club received by a correspondent. The email offered 'an amazing earning opportunity' by using a currency FX trading platform. Fortunately, the vigilant correspondent immediately passed this onto the club and we can confirm this is indeed a fraudulent email and an attempted financial scam. We thank that correspondent for their quick action.
Correspondents are reminded to be attentive and alert to club email addresses and/or any invoice attachments, and to ensure all payment procedures are followed. If in doubt, please contact the club via your usual contacts, and not via details provided in the suspicious email.
We thank our correspondents for their support provided to our members and the club during these extraordinary times, in particular your regular updates as to your respective ports and country regulations concerning COVID-19.
