Notice: Lawyers Receive Emails from Impostor Account Posing as VSB

Some lawyers in the Commonwealth received phony emails from an email ending in vastatebar.org, which is a fake account registered in Arizona that has spoofed the Virginia State Bar in the past.

Lawyers are asked not to interact with this email or click on any links in the email as it may contain malware, spyware, worms, or other damaging cyber security software.

In this latest spoofing, the emails purport to be from the VSB Ethics Department. The same email address was also used in a series of spoof emails in 2019.
