    This being busy season, I just wanted to share a Scam E-mail I received from a potential new client.  It contained attachments that I did not open. A few things made we wary of this email.

    1. The grammar of a supposed Chairman and President of a hospital.
    2. The referral source was not revealed to me
    3. Te cell and office number were the same.

    Out of curiosity, I called the number and got the hospital.  However, the signer was not an employee of the hospital.

    This is just a reminder to be careful and wary when opening up e-mails.

    Here it is,  I blocked out the signors name:

    Thanks for the reminder Richard!  I actually received the exact same message, only it was from a hospital in Houston, Texas. I deleted it as well. -- Mark
