There appears to have been a compromise to a local LWV league leader email group! Please ignore these messages! I am not asking any members to purchase gift cards! It is best to block the sender and do not reply back to the sender.
Here is an example message and please note the email address is fake!

Hi (member name),
I need your assistance, are you available? I’m out of town, I need you to handle this for LWV of Deschutes County.. We need some gift cards for donations to Veterans at Veterans Health Administration for Welfare patient and units.
