WARNING – HBA Poser Database SCAM

Have you received an email asking if you were interested in the “Housing & Building Association Home Show - Parade of Homes Attendees List 2017 “ ?

The offer (sample below) sounds a little fishy to us, simply because the HBA of Greater Springfield does NOT ask for complete contact details from every attendee to the Home Show and the Parade of Homes. We do collect names, email address and phone numbers from Home Show attendees that register for a drawing and we do collect the same information from Parade of Homes attendees that purchase tickets online, but we do NOT make this list available for purchase, nor have we shared it.

The HBA of Greater Springfield will NEVER send you an email offering a list of event registrants. The HBA of Greater Springfield will also NEVER request confidential information through an email. The only HBAGS web address where you can submit information securely is web.springfieldhba.com (direct connection to the HBA Membership Software and requires members to login with your username and password).

The HBA urges you to proceed with caution before making a purchasing decision based on an unsolicited email offer.

Below is a sample of a bogus email that was received recently by a member:
