ALERT: EMAIL PHISHING SCAM REPORTED

Students and employees are currently reporting a spear phishing email that is attempting to steal WVU usernames and passwords.

Users reading WVU email on smartphones may not notice that the sender is NOT from WVU and mistakenly believe this email is legitimate. Do not reply to this email. Promptly delete it.

Official WVU personnel will NEVER request your username and password combination in an email or by phone.

Any email you receive that demands you provide your username and password is a scam and should be reported to defendyourdata@mail.wvu.edu.

The Office of Information Technology reminds you that the best defense against scam artists and identity thieves is an educated user.
