A third party appears to be sending out fraudulent emails involving Nordstrom and e.l.f. cosmetics. Per PR Newswire, the department store "has learned of customers receiving e-mails from an unauthorized and unknown source linking Nordstrom to e.l.f. products and the website" Firmly stating that there is no affiliation between the two companies. The goal looks as if it was to get account info, as the release continues: "Customers who have disclosed their account information...should contact their bank and/or credit card company immediately. Nordstrom credit card holders should call 1-800-964-1800." [PR Newswire]
