No, Says it's an invoice from CAP Assistant IG for Education and Training. Claims they want $2400. I reported it to National HQ and they are aware of it.

oh well mine might just be a mistake in their system saying i paid for more than just the $60 basic yearly renewal. because when i checked my bank it says that cap only took the $60 and not the $$$ the email told me i paid

CAP.gov emails have been getting a bit spammy due to phished accounts lately, I noticed that as well on mine. I just delete the mails even without opening them, yay for the gmail interface with its preview line.

They are getting more sophisticated. My company's IT folk sent a warning this morning about one regarding the integration of another resort into our company. Very well written and looks official. If someone did not know better, they'd easily assume it was real.

I've been getting the same scam message about my iTunes store account.
It's for an in-game add on for Clash of the Clans.

+1 - the concept of PERSEC is lost on a lot of members, coupled with legit needs to have contact info listed publicly.
It's better now, but a lot of activities and units used to have rosters posted on their websites in areas easily spidered.

Google your CAPID, you might be unpleasantly surprised.

Couple that with people in 2nd and 3rd world nations with bandwidth and time where $100 could be life changing,
and there's plenty of incentive to try and target with more specificity.

I sent a warning this week to my clients about Docusign - they got hit with a breach, and now people are getting
phones calls and emails related to wire transfer phishing.  I've never sent a wire in my life, I don't even know how,
so when I got a call it was obvious, but I have clients who are non-technical / half-attention admins who process
5-& 6- figure wires all the time.  Very easy marks.

I have to hand it to you, you are correct.  Mine was a policy letter for Nurse Calls at the University of Michigan.  I am not a nurse and I hate Michigan.  :(

Interesting, apparently I am a gene in a Norway Rat as well as a Microsoft help article for XP and a postal code in Singapore.

Patent for an electric light display system...

That said....heed the warning.  Eclipse is right....the scamming is getting much better...my employer has intercepted several very sophisticated attempts to phish in the 'company pool', and a former employer was (electronically) shut down due to passwords never being changed for their default on a Unix system.
