Warning about Fraudulent Emails

Betraying the Spirit of Spark The Rise: Warning about Fraudulent Emails.
Dear Spark the Rise Community,
It has come to our attention that some users have been sending fraudulent emails to Project Champions informing them that their projects are being flagged and monitored for irregular voting patterns. We are taking this very seriously and working hard to identify who these individuals may be. These emails are inexcusable and betray the spirit of this initiative. We should all be working together to make our ideas and projects Rise: Intimidation and false threats is not what Spark the Rise is about, and we will NOT tolerate this kind of behavior.
In the meantime, we request that anyone who believes they have received a fraudulent email to please forward us a copy of the same. We would like to remind the community that official Spark the Rise emails will be sent via two email addresses only: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. Any other emails sent through a different email address are fraudulent and should be reported immediately.
