CaTS has noticed an increase in the number of phishing attempts targeting Wright State faculty, staff and students.
What are phishing scams?
- Phishing scams are emails designed to trick you into sending an unknown third party your account information or other personal or financial information.
- These emails may look like they’re coming from Wright State, CaTS, your bank or credit card issuer, or any other institution you do business with.
How can you avoid phishing scams?
- Remember that CaTS, WSU, and other reputable businesses WILL NEVER ask you for any personal information, such as your username and password, via email.
- Never respond to a suspicious email or click links in those emails.
- Don’t give out your personal information to anyone via email.
- Don’t download attachments from an email unless you trust the sender.
If you receive an email and are unsure if the message is a scam, feel free to contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827. We can help you determine whether the email you received is real or not.
