Warning: New Phishing Attempt 6/15

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

Be on the lookout for a variety of unexpected and unusual-looking messages that appear to be coming from a Bryn Mawr College community member. Some of these messages mention Bitcoin, others reference Handshake or a job opportunity. Some instruct you to email a “jkavanaugh”. These are all a scam.

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

Email scams come in many forms. While we work to keep you informed, attacks are increasingly diverse and sophisticated. It’s not possible for us to warn you of every message before you see it. Be cautious and suspicious. If you ever have a question or suspicion, don’t hesitate to contact the Help Desk.
