If you have received an email from mayor Andre Sayegh to “discreetly” purchase some gift cards, do not do it.

Sayegh’s private email was compromised, according to multiple city officials. His email account sent messages last week to other officials asking them to purchase $500 worth of Apple gift cards.

“The situation was resolved by our IT department,” said Sayegh when asked about the possible hack of his email.

Sayegh did not say when his email was hacked or how. He did not say whether the compromise led to theft of content from his email.
