It looks as though we have gotten our email issues under control, but please still keep the below in mind, just incase we happen to get hacked again (since it does happen frequently to everybody)
Some of you have been having issues recieving our emails, and we cannot figure out why, so I contacted Outlook Support to see if they could figure out the issue, and below is the response that I recieved. So would everyone please contact your support if you are not recieving our emails or are having issues with our emails.

ATTENTION: PLEASE READ - VERY IMPORTANT
NCBPA wants to sincerely apologize to any and all that have recently recieved emails asking you for a CCV Number from your Credit Card and/or have had your credit cards fraudelty charged. We unfortunately keep getting hacked by a company out of the UK and they keep pulling emails before I get to them or are pulling my replies with your receipts telling you that your card did not go through, etc.
1. We will NEVER ask you for the CCV Code to your Credit Card, we do not need it to run any charges
2. We will NEVER ask you to transfer money to any bank whatsoever
If by chance any of you have received any weird emails like this, please forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "HACKED", this way we can try to get this resolved.
If you are going to send anything to us and want to pay by credit card for the time being please do not fill out the credit card information, Lacy Castro our Office Manager will call you and get the information from you, or please feel free to send it by fax.
Again we apologize for this inconvenience and will keep you updated as to our resolution we come up with.
