ATTENTION, ATTENTION. Some hackers use very plausible emails to pretend to be me and ask you for help and money. This is a serious and frequent phenomenon. Know that I don’t go around asking for money, and certainly not to EFTA members, that I only use one email and have no other (please contact the secretariat if you want to know my right email) and that if you open these emails you risk being robbed of your data. PLEASE PROTECT YOURSELF by also protecting the good reputation of EFTA.
ΠΡΟΣΟΧΗ, ΠΡΟΣΟΧΗ. Μερικοί χάκερ χρησιμοποιούν πολύ αληθοφανείς διευθύνσεις email για να προσποιηθούν ότι είμαι εγώ και να σας ζητήσουν βοήθεια και χρήματα. Αυτό είναι ένα σοβαρό και συχνό φαινόμενο. Να ξέρετε ότι δεν κυκλοφορώ ζητώντας χρήματα, και σίγουρα όχι στα μέλη της EFTA, ότι χρησιμοποιώ μόνο ένα email και δεν έχω άλλο και ότι αν ανοίξετε αυτά τα email κινδυνεύετε να κλαπούν τα δεδομένα σας. ΠΑΡΑΚΑΛΩ ΠΡΟΣΤΑΤΕΨΤΕ ΤΟΝ ΕΑΥΤΟ ΣΑΣ προστατεύοντας επίσης την καλή φήμη της EFTA
