The following is from the A.R.R.L.:

A phishing scheme currently afoot has been targeting ARRL members who have signed up for the ARRL E-Mail Forwarding Service and have an e-mail alias. An e-mail from "Arrl Webmail Admin" with the subject line "ACCOUNT UPGRADE" was received September 25 by an unknown number of members who use e-mail aliases. The e-mail, which requests that recipients reply by providing their usernames and passwords, did not come from the ARRL, and anyone receiving this sort of message should delete it and not reply. The ARRL would never distribute an e-mail requesting personal information.
