Email Scam!

Be aware there's an email scam going from someone purporting to be the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. You will be offered a $2 million grant. It's fairly easy to spot. The offenders email is xxx@gates-foundation.org. The real foundation's addy is @gatesfoundation.org, with no hyphen. Don't respond. Forward the offending email to phishing@gatesfoundation.org. Don't know if they're trolling for people's financial info (pretty sure, tho!) or are attempting to get a toe into your system, but regardless of their intent, it's not to give you $2 million! :) Be careful out there!
