It seems that our FoKL President, Barb Mathews, had her email hacked. We believe it’s her personal email, not the FoKL email used to communicate with members, but just want to cover all bases. The email is a scam, sending out a bogus donation request under her (misspelled) name and Friends of Kansas Libraries affiliation requesting gift cards. You should be able to tell its a scam by the awkward phrasing, incorrect syntax, etc. But we wanted to alert all of our FoKL Friends.
