Security alert: E-mails impersonating AMA presidents
American Medical Association
The American Medical Association (AMA) recently became aware of fraudulent email solicitations that impersonate current AMA President, Dr. Susan Bailey, and past AMA President, Dr. Patrice Harris. The email solicitations, which fraudulently used the AMA name, were sent to foreign doctors and nurses as a call to apply for healthcare positions in the United States to treat COVID-19 cases. The initial communications were sent from an account named “health ministry” (email@example.com), and other fraudulent email addresses used include: , , and firstname.lastname@example.org.
A copy of the email solicitation appears below. Please be cautious in opening and responding to communications appearing to be from the AMA with the same or similar solicitation message.
