Avoid Email Phishing Scams

Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) have some tips for avoiding email phishing scams.

People we don’t know tell us they’ve tagged us in a Facebook feed or sent us some sort of goods in the mail (with a link to click for details). These are phishing scams designed to get you to reply or click a link in some way and at some point, supply them with sensitive information that allows them to access our accounts or data. Here’s a quick video with tips on avoiding email scams:
