  • Another OLLI member’s e-mail address has been compromised. If you receive an e-mail from one of your contacts asking for money, promoting a product or investment, or anything else that seems suspicious, do not respond! Contact the person by phone to let them know you received the suspicious e-mail and to check its legitimacy. This seems to be occurring with more frequency, so please be aware. Again, OLLI’s own lists have not been compromised, just individual members.
