Beware of Scam Targeting AFSCME Members

Our national AFSCME union been made aware that a sophisticated phishing and phone scam appears to be targeting AFSCME membership.

The email, supposedly from President Lee Saunders (click here for the screenshot) is coming from the scam email address and urges members to fill out a form to avoid furlough days.

The reported phone calls say that members owe money to AFSCME. Obviously, none of this is true.

These scams are not affiliated with AFSCME and the union has no control over them. We are actively tracking down who is behind the scams.

Please take the following steps if you receive a suspicious email:

  1. Do not click on the “stop receiving email” link at the bottom of the email.
  2. Do not respond to or open any attachments or click any linkss.
  3. Delete the email and alert your IT department if the email comes to you at work.
  4. Click here to notify us that you received a scam email.
