Spam Attack Warning

A recent spam attack features an urgent email claiming to be from a staff supervisor. The email tells you that your manager is busy in a meeting and needs you to either wire money or purchase items (like gift cards) and quickly send them to another address.

With these types of scams, the best advice is to simply delete the email. If you are unsure and think you may have received a legitimate email, CALL the Help Desk at ext. 4357 or your supervisor. Do not reply to the email.  

If you believe your account has been compromised, the best thing to do is reset your password immediately, even as a precaution. You can do this online through the ITS website or by contacting the Help Desk.
