**CYBER SECURITY ALERT**

December 17, 2022

One of the loosely organized hate groups in our area is setting up fake websites that pose as real synagogue websites. They look almost identical to real synagogue websites. They send a mass spam email and/or text messages asking people to click on a link that will take you to a fake website to make donations to your synagogue.
 
Please use caution! Speak with your parents and grandparents who may not be aware of these scams. Synagogues generally don’t run this type of campaign. Remind your less tech-savvy loved ones never to click on or donate to links you are not sure about. 
 
When in doubt, call your synagogue before responding to suspicious emails or text messages.
 
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact our JFO Security Manager, James Donahue at jdonahue@jewishomaha.org. You can also report suspicious emails and text messages to the JCRC by calling 402.334.6572.
