- Beware of E-mail Phishing Schemes
Many WPI community members have reported receiving "Phishing" style spam. Phishing is a high-tech scam that often uses e-mail to deceive people into disclosing sensitive personal information that can then be used to enable identity theft.
Please remember that no one in WPI IT will ever ask you for your password and you should never provide it. Any such requests are fraudulent.
For additional details about phishing threats and to increase your own awareness, see: http://www.wpi.edu/+infosec/phishing.html
