Group Newsletter -- Spring 2017 edition
Everyone in the Group will have received recently a personal copy of the Spring 2017 newsletter from Alliance HQ via Royal Mail. This formally announces our Group Annual General Meeting in April and the group outing to Chartwell in June.
A copy of the newsletter can be found
together with a separate copy of the form for the Chartwell outing, especially for those who prefer to keep their newsletters whole rather than having to cut out the form.
Malicious emails and software
From time to time we post warnings here about malicious emails and software that come to our attention. One such email, purporting to come from BT, was mentioned at our meeting on 7 February. This concerns an email that appears to respond to a user request to shut down a BT mailbox. Others reported receiving similar emails but with variations. In each case no such user request had been made and BT confirmed to the recipient the email had not originated from them.
So be vigilant. If you receive a similar email, apparently from BT and about which you are suspicious,
do not click on any link in the email
. Instead follow official BT advice given
