Arrived in our inbox yesterday – the trolls are busy

Licensees,

We’ve been alerted that an email to certain licensees is circulating that looks as if it is coming from a Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board enforcement officer. In addition, the email references a phone number that leads to a phone number at the WSLCB.

 An example of the false email and message is below.

Example 

Fraudulent Email: Pleasebecompliant@wslcb.com

Fraudulent Message: Green clean certified, huh? Then why do you carry XXX? They used Eagle 20 on their entire stock and continue to use banned pesticides and fungicides. What exactly do you guys stand for? XXX will be exposed in a Stranger article coming real soon! I’d suggest you guys move that garbage off of your shelves or risk destroying your reputation. This is your one and only warning.
