“Confirm Payment” – Phishing Scam – February 7, 2019

Posted on: February 7th, 2019 by Yuyang Zhao No Comments

Below is the most recent phishing email and website we have seen.  Similar to past emails, this scam attempts to trick users into entering personal account information (e.g. username/password). Users should not click any links in this email and should delete it right away. As a reminder, Loyola will never ask for your password or to verify your account.

If you have any questions about this or any email, before you act on the email, please call or email the ITS Helpdesk 773-508-4487, helpdesk@luc.edu.
