The potentially fraudulent domain is registered at "townofpittsfords.org".

Over the weekend, the Town of Pittsford discovered a potentially fraudulent website domain similar to their town website.

The potentially fraudulent domain is registered at "townofpittsfords.org".

The ONLY difference between this domain and the town's actual website (townofpittsford.org) is the 's' at the end of Pittsford.

Websites that use similar domains can be used for 'phishing,' a practice of sending emails claiming to be a reputable organization in order to gain access to personal information.

The Town of Pittsford wants to remind residents that they will NEVER send a request for personal information via email.

If you receive an email from this fraudulent address do not provide any personal information.

Instead, you are asked to contact the Town of Pittsford at (585) 248-6229 or email sobrien@townofpittsford.org.
