“ITS Alert: E-mail account validation” Phishing scam – August 4, 2017
The most recent phishing email we have circulating is shown below. It is similar to others we have seen in the past and once again attempts to trick the user into entering their account information into the site. If you receive this message, please delete it right away. As a reminder, Loyola will never ask for your password or to verify your account.

We hereby inform you that LUC has queued all email addresses in her database for validation. The reason for this is to sort out all inactive emails from the database and suspend access to them or deactivate them. Therefore, if you know that your email address is still active, please click here to validate and verify for your email to be marked as active. Subsequent information will be passed on to you after successful logon.
Remember, we shall pass this message around a few times and afterwards suspend access to email addresses which are not verified and will terminate this service to quarantine this activity.
