    scam alertSeveral members of CBA have received emails supposedly from Potter Orr asking them to send money.  These are all FAKE.  The scammers scan websites to harvest emails of the president of the organization and any other members.  Then they send these requests.  If you look closely at the email, although the from says Potter Orr, the from email address itself is not mine.  It is something like:      president???@gmail.com
    I have not been hacked and there is no cure, just laugh and delete.  Potter - 4/13/21
