Letter to Friends and Clients
We have learned to our dismay that a number of our Friends and Clients have received phishing emails from scammers pretending to be me.
We take information security very seriously and ask that you also be vigilant in order to prevent fraud and to help protect our common interests.
Here are a few precautions to take:
- Confirm the sender’s identity before replying to email requests and before opening attachments or clicking on links, even if they appear to come from a legitimate source.
- Consult your ISP or Information Technology department about any phishing attempts.
- Call us to validate communications originating from A-Z Holiday Homes. Here is an example of a fraudulent email request. (Note the incorrect telephone numbers and name of A-Z Holiday Homes in the email signature; and name in the ‘From’ field.)
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact George or myself.

Thank you for your vigilance.
