“Urgent Office Purchase” – Phishing Scam – February 26, 2019

Posted on: February 27th, 2019 by Richard Mahmud Okhai 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.

Hi   ,  are you available at the moment?

 

Can you let me know if we can purchase some gift cards today at the store. Do get back to me so I can let you know the type of gift card and denominations.

 

Email me back I can’t take calls right now.

 

Thank you
