Description: MERS is aware of a malicious email sent to our customers asking them to make additional pension contributions to a false bank account. Unlike some of the previously reported emails from customers, this was a phishing attack that had increased sophistication. MERS sent out an eblast to all employer contacts at all municipalities warning them of this scam and providing information on what they should do if they receive this type of email.

Sample: A sample of the eblast can be found here.
