Pilots (particularly Hub Managers),

Please be advised that today I received a version of this fake copyright infringement email.  I was suspicious of it and did some research rather than clicking on the link.  I found that it was in fact an effort to install ransomware virus on my system.  To see an explanation of this scam, please check this site:

This email came in via our main website email that is directed to me.  Pilot emails are hidden and unlikely to be accessed, but Hub Manager's email may be accessed via our Hub Manager Email forwarding, so hub managers may also received forwarded messages such as this.  It's important to be aware of these emails and delete them and DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS INCLUDED IN THESE EMAILS.

Thanks for the heads up, John. I get all kinds of scam, discretionary e-mails, some of them are so obviously phony, l just delete them. Some of them try to imitate some of the companies that I deal with, in this case, I take a screenshot and forward them to their security depts. Let them deal with it.
When you go online, expect the unexpected.
