Beware of recent texting scam
Scammer poses as an Asante executive leader.
We are aware of a texting scam targeting some employees by someone falsely posing as Amanda Kotler, Asante’s chief nursing officer.
The scammer tries to initiate contact via text from (509) 934-8043, or possibly other phone numbers, to get employees to send financial information.
Please do not respond or provide any financial information.
Here is what we know:
- The scammer poses as Amanda Kotler via text message. (Be aware the scammer may use other Asante senior leader identities.)
- If the employee responds, the scammer states that they “need you to do something important for me ASAP.”
- Posing as Amanda, the scammer states they “want to surprise some of the staff” with gift cards and seeks your financial information.
This is a scam. Please be vigilant. Asante’s executive team members never will ask employees for financial information via text.
Please direct any questions or concerns to Asante’s HR or Legal teams.
