NOTICE: Recent e-mail from prez_hwha@yahoo.com

Neighbors,
In the very early morning on 2/18/13 an e-mail from the prez_hwha@yahoo.com address went out to various contacts in that account.  The e-mail contained only a link and no other information.  Please be advised that the e-mail was not sent by the Heritage Woods Association and please do not click on the link as it could be of any variety of malware.  I have looked into the issue with Yahoo! and the account itself was not compromised, however, I have taken an additional step to re-secure the account.  There are systems on the internet that use various coding methods to send e-mails from a user's account to their e-mail list without actually having full access to the account.  This appears to be what has happened in this case.

For your further protection, please note the following:

1) Heritage Woods Association no longer officially uses the prez_hwha@yahoo.com account.  It is kept only as an archive to past correspondence.  All e-mails from the Association or Board members will come from an e-mail ending in @heritagewoodsassociation.org or @hwoods.org.  At times, e-mail responses to member inquiries may also come from a Board member's private e-mail account.

2) Board members will never send an unsolicited e-mail containing only a link.  If a link is ever sent to homeowners, it will be accompanied by an explanation of its purpose.  Also, unless specifically requested, you will also never receive file attachments from a Board member without prior correspondence.  If you are ever unsure whether an e-mail, link, or file is legitimate, please send a reply e-mail to the sender requesting more information.

I sincerely apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this, or any other such events, may cause.  Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

All the best,
Matthew Kreitzer
President, Heritage Woods Association, Inc.
