On Friday October 19, 2007, the EEOC issued a warning about a “phishing” e-mail circulating to companies that purports to be from the EEOC regarding a harassment complaint. The bogus e-mail contains a Trojan Horse Virus that is likely to harm a recipient’s computer if the user clicks on the referenced web link and/or downloads the attached file. The EEOC’s warning serves as a reminder that the agency’s policy is to notify an employer of the filing of a charge of employment discrimination using the U.S. Postal System, and not by email.
