What to do if you have received a ‘phishing’ email?

The Arts Center will never ask in an email for your bank details or for you to make payment for tickets or
otherwise (outside of our box office system). We use a secure website for all financial transactions. If you have
received an email asking for payment, it is likely to be a ‘phishing’ email. Phishing is an online scam that
targets large numbers of email addresses often using a known brand to persuade people to part with their
money. Please let us know if you receive such a request, so we can investigate and protect others.
