Email scams are on the rise and there is no way to effectively block them from your UWF email. In particular, a type of email scam known as phishing attempts to trick you into divulging personal information: username, password, date of birth, SSN, etc. The high volume of fraudulent email makes it impractical for the ITS Help Desk to alert campus of every new scam, so it is the responsibility of each UWF employee to learn how to identify and react to phishing emails.
If you receive a phishing email, mark it as spam. If you need help determining the legitimacy of an email or website, call or email the ITS Help Desk.
If you responded to a phishing scam, it is important to act quickly. If you provided a password, account number, or PIN number, immediately notify the organization that manages the account. In the case of your UWF ArgoNet password, contact the ITS Help Desk.
