Faculty, Staff, and Students,
The Help Desk was recently notified of yet another phishing scam email that targets students, faculty, and staff of Wright State University. The message tells the reader that their shipment from FedEx was not delivered, and that in order to pick it up they would need to print a shipping label and bring that to the nearest FedEx office. The “Print Shipment Label” link, if clicked, then takes the user to a website where a virus is downloaded to the user’s computer. This virus could also be included as an attachment to the email.
Please note that this message is a scam and not an official notice from FedEx. DO NOT fall victim to this scam by clicking the link or downloading the attachment.
Remember, reputable companies will not ask you to provide or print verification information via email. If you receive a suspicious message asking for this information, report it to CaTS immediately. You can contact us by phone at (937) 775-4827, or send us an email at email@example.com.
