Phishing and Fake Job Offer Scams

Friday, November 15, 2019
phishing

CaTS has noticed an increase in the number of phishing attempts at the beginning of Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Below is information to help keep your Wright State accounts secure:

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.
  • The links in phishing emails often take you to a web page that appears to be a WSU site, such as wings.wright.edu. You can avoid being tricked by these fake pages by typing in the URL, such as wings.wright.edu rather than trusting the link. 
  • Many email scams often contain fake job offers; if an email contains poor grammar or wording, or seems too good to be true, it most likely is.

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.

Questions?

If you receive an email and are unsure if the message is a scam, contact the CaTS Help Desk at (937) 775-4827. We can help determine whether the email you received is real or not.
