Urgent: Phishing Scam Information-August 14, 2012

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 email account storage is over quota, and that they need to click the link in the email to upgrade their account. Once clicked, a page comes up asking for a username and password.

This scam message could have a subject line with the words "Final Warning!!!!" and might have a "copyright 2012 Wright State University" line within the email.

Please note that this is a scam and not an official notice from Wright State University or CaTS. DO NOT fall victim to this scam by clicking the link or entering your log in information. If you do, your campus account could be used by spammers to send spam email.

Remember, CaTS will NEVER ask you for your account information via email or the web. If you have questions concerning this, please contact the Help Desk at (937) 775-4827.
