Submitting Scam Messages

What Is It?

Protect Yourself:
  • No matter how real it looks - IT'S NOT REAL!!!

  • Don't ever respond or reply to these messages!

  • Don’t be fooled by official looking "form letter" phishing "notification" messages.

If You Become a Victim:

If you suspect that you may have exposed your personal information to an unauthorized individual, you should:

  • Immediately change passwords for ALL compromised accounts (school, work, personal), using a different computer.

  • If using a home or office machine, have that machine scanned for a possible malware infection.

  • If you have given out credit or bank card information, immediately notify your bank or credit card company and report this disclosure.
