BIDS notification of additional e-mail scam

From Pat Scalia, State Director, Kansas CLE Commission:

Dear Assigned Counsel:

There is an additional e-mail scam being circulated that is claiming to be
from BIDS and advising that an amount is being processed to your credit
card.

DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT.

BIDS DOES NOT MAKE PAYMENT TO YOUR CREDIT CARD.

All payments for indigent defense services are processed by the Kansas
Department of Administration, not BIDS, and are sent to your bank if you set
up direct deposit.

If you receive an e-mail claiming to be from BIDS regarding owing a bill or
regarding payment of a bill, please advise us of the sender's address and
the advice, but do not respond to the sender.

Mary Shultz
