AIA Small Project Design (SPD) Knowledge Community supports, celebrates, and promotes small projects by engaging designers and the public.
I'm not an AIA member but read the Small Project Design Digest and yes, this is a scam. I've received these messages via text and email. After responding to the first text message I realized it was/is bogus. My tech provider has reviewed the messages and they're definitely phishing.
Hope this helps!
