Warning: There have been several recent reports from RAC members of phishing attempts by someone purporting to be from Radio Amateurs of Canada. Phishing attempts use publicly available information to fake legitimacy. In some cases they use the names and contact information of RAC officials to gain your trust. For example, today’s phishing attempt falsely states that it originates from “Phil A McBride” and this is not the case. It also uses the fake heading “Special Report from Radio Amateurs of Canada – 2/21/2024” to encourage users to open the document by clicking on a link. Please do not!
