It has been drawn to our attention that emails purporting to come from the ASCOBANS Secretariat have asked recipients to urgently reply, click on links, or download attachments. We would like to warn all our contacts to be extremely vigilant that only emails received from or the domain names are official. Hover the mouse cursor on top of the email address to see where it was sent from. We advise everyone to ignore and immediately delete any such suspicious email sent from free email platforms such as Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail etc. using the name of the Secretariat or pretending to be sent on its behalf. Please exercise the utmost care.
