Recently there has been an increase in spam email attempts directed at AAFS members. Most of these spam attempts are coming from people who are imitating either Anne Warren or Zeno Geradts, although they may appear to come from other AAFS members of the organization. When receiving an email from AAFS that you think is spam or suspicious in any way, there are a couple of things to check. First, please ensure any emails coming from AAFS are sent from aafs.org. Second, when replying to any email from AAFS, remove the pre-populated email address and retype the email address. This will ensure that the email will go to someone at AAFS and not to an external source.

If you have any questions about the validity of any email you receive from AAFS, please feel free to reach out to IT@aafs.org.
