Campus Community,
Many on campus recently received an e-mail asking for updated W-2 information. This message is a phishing scam and the message should be deleted without clicking any of the links.
Phishing e-mails are meant to trick the recipient into giving up their personal information by appearing to be sent from a trusted source.
Some tips to protect yourself from phishing scams:

  • Be suspicious of any e-mail asking for your personal information.
  • Do not click the links contained in any message that you suspect might not be authentic. If you have any question about the authenticity of a message, call the person or organization directly to verify that it was sent by them.
  • Report suspicious e-mail messages immediately to the IT Help Desk at 895-0777.
