Warning: New Phishing Attempt 6.26.19

Posted June 26th, 2019 at 11:07 am.

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 messages that appear to be signed by Kim Cassidy and refer to a Professional Integrity Program and Ethical Conduct Program For Bryn Mawr College Employees. This is a scam.

Do not click links, download/open files, 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.

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, the Help Desk is pleased to help verify messages.
