Email phishing scams – July/August 2022

There has been an increase in phishing emails recently which ask staff to enter personal details to access voicemail or to reset their system or library accounts. The ISG technical teams are working to stop these emails being delivered, but some are still reaching inboxes. Please remember that the University will never send you an email asking for your date of birth, National Insurance number or any other personal details to access any University service.

More advice on spotting phishing emails and guidance on how to report them is available on the Information Security website.

Please remember, if something does not seem right then you should be suspicious and act appropriately.  

If you have any emails that you are not sure about you should forward them as an attachment to IS Helpline who will investigate. Please see "Reporting a suspicious email" on our contact page for details on how to do that.
