BEWARE OF PHISHING EMAILS

DO NOT REPLY TO, FORWARD OR CLICK ANY LINKS in emails that request your username/password or ask you to log in to your account. Even if they claim to be from another staff member. This is a common method used to steal your login information. These scams may come in various forms with either text based links or images.  Below are some examples of ones we've received in the past.

SPOTTING A PHISHING EMAIL

Here are a few look-for's to avoid falling for a phishing attempt:

  • Misspellings 
  • Strange email address or domain spelling. (i.e., "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.", "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it."
  • Mismatched links (text link is different than actual link when you hover over it)
  • Urgency
  • Requests for personal information or to unlock your account.
  • Unexpected emails

The basic rule of thumb is that if something looks "off" or you weren't expecting an email from someone, contact them via another method to verify its authenticity.
