“ITS Alert: E-mail account verification” Phishing scam – August 29, 2017

Posted on: August 29th, 2017 by

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 lure 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.

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,

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 and login for your e-mail account 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.
