email scams

It's not uncommon for members of the university community to receive fraudulent messages that appear to come from a legitimate source—even a sender with an @case.edu email address. In this practice commonly known as "phishing," attackers disguise themselves as Case Western Reserve, other universities, the "help desk" or your bank to lure you into providing them with confidential information. Ignore and delete messages that request your username and password or other personal information, such as your birth date or social security number. ITS will never ask for your personal information or password in an email message; our correspondance will direct you to help.case.edu if further action is needed.
