Suggest you take a look at this link on a posting I did earlier today at Morningstar on a phishing scam that found its way into my e-mail box this morning.

https://community.morningstar.com/t5/Off-Topic/Tis-the-seaso...

The e-mail looks, at first glance, like it is legit and I fear many would click on the link to the bill-paying site. But authentic as it may appear at first, it is a scam.

Watch yourselves....many are fearful today and may feel compelled to respond to fraud like this. The rule should be NEVER click on a site from an e-mail. Got to the service site on your own and find the answer to the concern raised by the e-mail that way.

Let's stay safe out there during this time of anxiety for many
