Subject: [Nfbnet-members-list] IMPORTANT phishing alert


Good afternoon everyone,


I wanted to draw your attention to a scam that is currently making the rounds to members’ inboxes purporting to be from President Riccobono. You may receive an email with the subject line “Sorry to bother you during this Pandemic” and a from address of executiveboard29 at gmail.com <mailto:executiveboard29 at gmail.com> . The address appears to belong to Mark A. Riccobono. Recipients are asked if they are free at the moment.


Rest assured that President Riccobono has not sent such a message and does not use a Gmail account for National Federation of the Blind communications. There is no need to respond to this message or engage the sender. Please also be aware that you may see variants of this message—different originating address, slightly different subject line or content, etc. Always confirm email message legitimacy before responding, clicking hyperlinks, or opening attachments. 


Should you encounter what you believe to be spam messages sent on behalf of the Federation, you should forward them on to issues at nfb.org <mailto:issues at nfb.org> . Thanks for you continued vigilance. Stay socially distant and stay healthy.


Kind regards,




John Berggren

Executive Director, Operations

200 East Wells Street, Baltimore, MD 21230
