Trick or Treat? Phishing Emails in Office 365

Posted October 24th, 2016 at 11:23 am.

Phishing is a form of scam designed to trick you into giving out personal information such as your password, credit card information, or Social Security number.

Phishing emails can be hard to spot, so it’s important to know what to look for. Keep an eye out for messages sent from an email address that doesn’t match the listed sender name, as well as any odd links, images, formatting, or a lack of signature. Also keep in mind that Bryn Mawr College – like many other institutions and companies – will NEVER ask you to give us your password, either via phone or email.
