We have been alerted to these inauthentic messages being sent to people. These emails are not originating with PBS or any of our partners, but from spammers who are sending counterfeit emails claiming to be from a domain similar to pbs.org in an attempt to confuse users.
Our colleagues are working to add additional authentication protocols act.pbs.org to make it more difficult for unauthorized parties to make use of it while they investigate more permanent solutions.
In the meantime, we suggest tagging the emails as spam so they go automatically into your junk folder. Also, this alerts your email service provider so they can take appropriate action. We regret that you are receiving these messages.
