Fraudulent e-mail circulating community
An e-mail sent out Wednesday is circulating in Craig and Moffat County that fraudulently claims to be from the ownership of the Craig Daily Press.
The e-mail, which was sent in the afternoon from email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org accounts, contains a link to an online survey requesting feedback on Daily Press Publisher Bryce Jacobson. It was sent to numerous local businesses and residents.
However, the e-mail did not come from the Daily Press, its management or ownership, and any representation to the contrary is false.
The newspaper’s ownership and management are concerned about the misuse of the company’s name, said Suzanne Schlicht, chief operating officer of World West Limited Liability Co., which owns the Daily Press.
The Daily Press ownership is consulting with its attorney about the matter, Schlicht said.
Participate in The Longevity Project
The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.
“I’m disappointed that someone felt the need to use our name in this false light,” Schlicht said. “We are an open and transparent news organization that welcomes criticism and feedback. The deceptive nature of this e-mail and survey calls into question the credibility and motive of the person behind it.”
Craig and Moffat County community members are welcome to give feedback about the newspaper or its leadership to Jacobson or Schlicht.
