ITS Phish Bowl

Criminals use malicious email to try to trick you into revealing your password or other sensitive information or to infect your computer with malware. These phishers sometimes try to make their emails look real by using companies’ or institutions’ logos, fonts and colors. Urgent demands also are common (for example, “Reply with your password within 24 hours or your account will be closed!”). You can learn more about identifying phishing emails on Answers. You also can follow ITS on Instagram for phishing scam alerts.

The following phishing emails have recently circulated throughout the Syracuse University community. If you have received them, please delete them.
