Email and Text Scams

Updated: Thursday, Feb 20, 2020 8:35 am

The university has become aware of recent email scams and text messaging scams targeting students, faculty and staff. Recently email scams and text messaging scams are appearing to be sent from university administrators requesting you to complete chores for them or appearing from your supervisor asking you to complete tasks that you would not usually do. If you receive an email or text from a university administrator, or anyone that seems out of the ordinary ask questions to make sure the request is truly from the sender. Never give out personnel information, DOB, SS#, Spire #, bank accounts or other information that could give scammers access to accounts.

If you receive an email or text that you believe is a scam, please notify IT. To report phishing messages, submit them as an attachment to the address: itprotect@umass.edu

ALERT: How to report fraud emails

Updated: Thursday, Mar 9, 2017 10:36 am

Please be cautious of scams and possible phishing attempts. If you are unsure about an email, it's best not to click any links or open any attachments. Feel free to call or email us with questions. We will be able to help determine if it's a threat or not. If you are going to send an email to us about a specific email in question, please "Forward as an Attachment" (done by going using the "More" button next to the normal reply/forward section of outlook). This allows us to trace where the email came from and determine what systems are compromised.
