Beware of Online Criminals
Posted by Jo-Ann Guilmett on 14 December 2017 11:24 AM
The Holidays are a time when we typically see a significant increase in the amount of fraudulent email. Please be mindful of email scams, phishing, quick money and other extortion schemes.
These online criminals and predators frequently take advantage of the busy time of year in the hope of tricking people out of their usernames, passwords, money and other personally identifiable information.
Legitimate businesses will never ask you to click on a link in an email to provide additional information, confirm your log-on credentials or transfer funds. Furthermore, NO ONE at Plymouth State University will ever ask you to provide your log-on credentials via a link in an email.
Please remain vigilant!
