Families in Tacoma found suspicious emails in their inboxes monday after an email platform used by Tacoma public Schools was hacked.
The cut sent out 37,600 phishing emails to families, parents and other people in the community monday afternoon.
The emails appeared to be sent by Tacoma public Schools and included file links. 1 email headline read, Pete Andrews sent you a file statement, and other asked users to please take empty lines in your account statement.
School district faculty were quick to alert people through social media that the emails were fake and not to penetrate on them.
They urged people who already clicked on them to change their passwords and describe the spam emails.
Spokesperson Dan Voelpel told The News Tribune that constant contact is a vendor the district contracts with to send e-newsletters.
Weve reported it to them, and theyre investigating, Voelpel said.
