Idaho State Bar & Idaho Law Foundation Announcements
The following announcements have been published within the past six (6) months.
It has come to our attention that Idaho attorneys are receiving emails that appear to come from the Idaho State Bar indicating that a complaint has been made or disciplinary action commenced regarding the attorney. Those emails are not originating from the Idaho State Bar and instead appear to be an attempt to phish members or introduce harmful software into their system.
Please know that the Idaho State Bar does not send emails indicating a complaint has been made or disciplinary action commenced. We also do not send email notices that include invoices for bar fees. If you receive such a message, please delete the message and avoid opening any attachments.
There are many informational pieces online to help you identify potential attacks such as this. One such resource is an article from Entrepreneur.com. You may view it here: entrepreneur.com/article/252401.
We strive to let you know when we become aware of potential unauthorized activities.
