It has come to our attention that many residents in Bend have received the below email which includes a dire warning at the end. This is a scam – do not reply to it. Simply delete it.
It has many tell-tale signs of scam with spacing issues, typos and a threat — the wildblue.net extension is also a long known scam hitting telecom companies nationwide over the past few years.
Thank you to the customers who called in to report it.
