The board write…

Recently licensees have alerted us to a fraudulent email (see below) claiming to be from the WSLCB that instructs readers to click on a harmful link that attempts to collect their username and password. Official agency emails originate from a @lcb.wa.gov address, we do not use Comcast, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. for electronic correspondence. The agency will not ask you to provide personal information (credit card and bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, passwords, etc.) via text or email. If you receive a request for personal information, especially one as poorly worded as this, you should reach out to the WSLCB to verify its authenticity.
