*BEWARE OF FRAUDSTERS SOLICITING PERSONAL INFORMATION USING CWGL'S NAME*

The Center for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL) is concerned that 
individuals claiming to represent CWGL are soliciting personal 
information and sending false "survey results" through fraudulent e-mail 
accounts and social media network profiles. 

CWGL is advising the public, its partners and allies that the Center 
does not request personal or private information from anyone. CWGL does 
occasionally request expert feedback from our constituents via surveys 
or questionnaires, particularly in reference to the 16 Days Campaign; 
however, these surveys will be posted on our official websites and can 
be verified directly.

CWGL strongly recommends that recipients of fraudulent requests for 
private information such as those described above exercise extreme 
caution, and that they do not respond to those appeals. Identity theft 
could result from the transfer of personal information to those issuing 
such fraudulent requests.

Anyone with doubts about the authenticity of an e-mail, social media 
message, letter or telephone communication purportedly from, for, or on 
behalf of CWGL or its staff, is encouraged to contact us at 
cwgl at rci.rutgers.edu <mailto:cwgl at rci.rutgers.edu>. We also encourage 
you to send an e-mail to your e-mail/social network provider denouncing 
the action and the e-mail/social network provider of the account 
soliciting personal information.

*AVISO: HAY PERSONAS QUE ESTÁN INTENTANDO RECOGER INFORMACIÓN PERSONAL 
AL NOMBRE DEL CWGL DE MANERA FRAUDULENTE*

El Centro por el Lilderazgo Global de las Mujeres (CWGL) está preocupado 
porque hay personas que están presentandose como representantes del CWGL 
buscando información personal y enviando "resultados de la encuesta" 
falsos mediante cuentas de e-mail falsas y perfiles falsas de las redes 
de medios sociales. 

El CWGL quiere avisar al público, nuestros socios y aliadas/os que 
nuestro Centro nunca pide información personal o privado de nadie.  De 
vez en cuando el CWGL pide retroalimentación experto de los grupos o 
personas asociados con nuestro centro mediante encuestas o 
cuestionarios, especialmente con respecto a la Campaña de los 16 Días. 
Sin embargo, tales encuestas estarán postadas por nuestros sitios web 
oficiales, los cuales se puede verificar directamente.

El CWGL recomiende fuertemente que las personas que se hayan recibido 
mensajes fraudulentes pidiendo información personal  del tipo explicado 
anteriormente ejercen la caución extrema, y que no respondan a las 
peticiones.  El resultado podría ser el robo de su identidad y la 
transferencia de información personal a las personas que emitían las 
peticiones.

Surgerimos que cualquier persona que tiene dudas sobre la autenticidad 
de un correo electrónico, un mensaje del medio social, una carta o una 
comunicación telefóncia que supuestamente proviene de, para o por parte 
del  CWGL o su equipo de trabajo, se nos contacten en el 
cwgl at rci.rutgers.edu <mailto:cwgl at rci.rutgers.edu>. También les 
sugerimos que envíen un e-mail al proveedor de su correo electrónico/red 
social denunciando la acción junto el e-mail/proveedor de la red social 
de la cuenta que emitió el mensaje pidiendo información personal.

Los sitios web oficiales del Centro son:

    * http://www.cwgl.rutgers.edu/
    * http://16dayscwgl.rutgers.edu/
    * http://www.gearcampaign.org/
