Phishing Issue

Service Description

Be aware of scams. Remain vigilant when reading email and surfing the web. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you are asked for personal information or passwords -- especially by someone you don't know personally -- be extremely wary. Do not respond to such "phishing" or "social engineering" attempts (as they are known) and hang up on callers seeking such information.

Audience

All Mines Community members.

Requesting the Service

If you become aware of a phishing attempt by email please report it here so that we can take steps to prevent the messages from reaching other users. Also report here if you may have fallen prey to a phish.
