Fraudulent Fund-Raising E-Mails Not from Gulf Council

Beware of Fraudulent Email Campaign

A phishing scam is targeting the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council and it's contacts. If you have received an email asking for money of behalf of the Council, it is fraudulent and should be deleted immediately.

The Gulf Council is not asking for donations. We are working to trace the origins of this fraudulent email. Thank you for understanding.

If you have any questions, contact Emily Muehlstein at: Emily.Muehlstein@gulfcouncil.org
