Don’t be the (phishing) catch of the day

posted Jan 17, 2014, 6:29 AM by Pat Idol

As an email user in today’s cyber world, you will most likely receive phishing emails that appear to be sent from a reputable organization such as your bank or even Wake Forest University.  The emails entice you to click on a link to provide your passwords, credit card numbers, social security number, etc.  Protect your data and the University’s data by not responding.  Be skeptical.  Wake Forest will never ask you to provide such personal information via email message.

In order to protect you, your data and the University’s data, Information Systems will disable your computing account and contact you if you responded to a phishing scam. If you have any questions about this message or about suspicious email messages, always contact the Information Systems Service Desk at help@wfu.edu.  We want to hear from you.
