WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - If you get an email from Samaritan Medical Center, be careful about giving out your personal information. That’s because the email could be a phishing attack.

SMC says Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, several emails were sent out from two Samaritan accounts “with a payload intended to harvest user credentials.”

If you receive an email titled “Samaritan Health 04/11/2023 Business Review” or “Samaritan Health 04/12/2023 Business Review,” you’re urged to delete it immediately.

If you followed the links and entered your credentials, Samaritan says you should change them as quickly as possible.
