  4. Fraudulent Email Alert – July…

The Florida Bar is warning its members that fraudulent emails regarding unpaid invoices are being distributed. We advise members not to click on any links or attachments contained within the emails and to permanently delete them immediately. You should also notify your IT department as soon as possible. We suspect that these emails contain malicious software.

The fraudulent emails are purportedly signed by Florida Bar staff or members, and they direct members to pay an outstanding invoice by clicking on the link or attachment provided. 

If you have questions about outstanding invoices or payments due, please call The Florida Bar’s Finance Department/Cash Receipts & Registrations at 1-800-342-8060, ext. 5831, or e-mail [email protected]. If you have questions about annual fees, please contact the Membership Records Dept. at 800-342-8060, ext. 5832, or e-mail at [email protected]
