Important Email Fraud Information

Friday, July 8, 2016

The Help Desk recently learned that some Wright State faculty, staff, and students are receiving notifications of fraudulent emails. Users are receiving malicious emails originating from forged  '’ addresses. The sender and receiver addresses are the same, so it appears in your inbox as if you are receiving an email from your own Office 365 email address.

Email malware and phishing scams have increased over the past week and are targeting all Wright State members. Please be aware of these scams. Do not open any documents attached to a suspicious email or give out any personal information.

If you have any questions or receive a suspicious email, please contact the CaTS Help Desk immediately. You can reach us at (937) 775-4827, or email
