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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
