- Be on the lookout for messages that share an attached Word document, particularly if you were not expecting it. This is a scam.
- Also watch for emails directing you to contact a non-BMC email account for an employment opportunity. This is a scam, too.
Do not open attachments, click on 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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 610-526-7440.
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.
