The Florida Bar is warning its members that fraudulent emails regarding membership information are being distributed. We advise members not to click on the 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 update their information by clicking on the attachment provided.
