Posted on: November 23rd, 2016 by Christopher Campbell

Beware of a new email scam that is targeting Loyola. The email will begin with text similar to that found below, and will advise you to call a number supposedly associated with Microsoft technical support. Please delete such emails without calling the number or clicking any links. Unsuspecting users who call in will likely be guided through a series of steps designed to collect your personal information and/or install malware on your machine.
