If you have received email messages like the one below with the subject: "Your application to join our network of International Society of Executives & Professionals," please delete them. The links in the fake email messages go to the websites: "www.isoep.co", "www.networksbusinesses.com", "isoepapplication.com" and other similar websites. The websites claim to belong to an organization that calls itself "The International Society of Executives & Professionals" or "Exclusive Network of Business Leaders" that are advertised by unsolicited emails, which claim that the recipients have been specially selected for membership in this "elite network," and urging them to 'confirm' their information. The websites will then ask the recipients to register, which is a deceptive way of collecting personal information, so recipients of the fake email messages should delete them, and should never follow the instructions in them.
