The following story is brought free of charge to readers by EC Infosystems, the exclusive EDI provider of EnergyChoiceMatters.com

ERCOT issued a market notice stating that, on April 18, 2019, ERCOT received reports that some Market Participants have received fraudulent emails using a spoofed email address appearing to come from ERCOT.

Upon investigation, ERCOT said in the market notice it appears that these email messages, which did not originate from ERCOT, may include a URL that, when clicked, directs users to a malicious website.

ERCOT has identified the following details about the spoofed emails:

Spoofed email address: services@ercot.com

Subject line: Energy Contract Review

ERCOT said that the email address 'services@ercot.com' is not used by ERCOT, and Market Participants should not expect emails with this email address from ERCOT. "Please be on alert for this fraudulent email and take appropriate security measures as needed," ERCOT said in the notice

Market Participants that received the fraudulent email are encouraged to report the incident to their ERCOT Account Manager.
