Beware of Potential Hurricane Harvey Phishing Scams – When a tragedy strikes, cyber criminals typically set up fraudulent donation sites, and online scammers look to prey on people who want to help.

This week, scammers have been using Hurricane Harvey-themed messages to trick people into opening phishing emails and links on social media sites. This, in turn, can not only con victims out of money, but lead to stolen login information and devices infected with malware. Please be vigilant about exercising caution in handling any email with subject line, attachments, or hyperlinks related to Hurricane Harvey, even if they appear to originate from a trusted source.  Always be mindful when opening any email attachment or clicking on a link. Think before you click! I have included below some tips from Homeland Security’s National Cyber Awareness System.

If you ever have a question about an email you receive, forward it to abuse@umw.edu or contact the IT Help Desk.
