Please be aware of a recent attempt to gather login, password, and other secure personal or College data from Bryn Mawr College community members.

Do not open or download the attachment. Do not click links or respond in any way. Delete the message or report it as Phishing in the Outlook Web App. If you believe you’ve given your information to a phisher, immediately change your password and contact the Help Desk.
