Dear Readers,

Recently, our Assistant Beauty Editor Andrea Jordan has fallen victim to identity theft, with fraudulent emails being sent on her behalf from personal accounts.

These emails offer “assignments” and “contracts” in return for “product purchases” and other “fees.”

ESSENCE would never knowingly participate in such practices. We value your trust in us, as well as our brand integrity.

Please know that ESSENCE has neither empowered nor endorsed these imposters, and as such, have engaged our legal team to pursue retribution to the fullest extent of the law.

Thank you,

―Vanessa De Luca, Editor-in-Chief
