Email requests for account information

Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2009

Several people have reported receiving email requests for SCU id and password information for email accounts, with the message indicating that the request is from "webmaster@scu.edu".  This is scam attempt - if you have received an email message with the subject line "VERIFY YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT" requesting that you reply with your account information, do not reply.  As a general rule, you should never send information of this type via email.  SCU online systems do not send requests of this type via email, and any other legitimate secure site would also not ask for password information to be sent in an email message.
