The North Olympic Library System is warning patrons of a possible scam.
NOLS representatives last week said a number of local residents have received emails stating they owe the library system money.
“These emails are SPAM and no one should click on the links provided within them, or reply to the sender,” NOLS executive director Noah Glaude said in a press release on April 1.
“These emails were phishing attacks and not associated with NOLS in any way.”
People who have received a notice from the library but are concerned it may be spam should consider:
• Email notices from NOLS are sent from LibraryNotice@nols.org
• NOLS only charges for lost or damaged items, and in those cases bills are sent in the mail; NOLS does not charge overdue fines
• Those who need to a library fee online should visit nols.org directly and log in to their account
