Phishing emails using SHRM name
I just wanted to give our members a heads up that there is an email being sent out to HR professionals. It claims to be an invoice from SHRM for your annual membership fees. The scammers have lifted logos and such and even give the correct phone numbers. It looks like they are trying to get you to send a check to their fake address. That was the piece of information that didn't match SHRM website information.
It would probably be safer to go to SHRM's website and renew over the phone or through their secure payment portal. If you need to pay by check you can go to their printable application here: https://www.shrm.org/about-shrm/Documents/SHRMProfessionalMembershipApplication.pdf
Please be cautious when you receive requests for information or payment that you didn't instigate. It seems every year there are more schemes out there.
