Reports of phishing attempts were brought to the attention of LITS by several in the Allegheny community. The message claimed to be coming from a member of LITS, asking for cell phone numbers.
This is a good reminder to be cautious when receiving unexpected emails.
If you get a message you think is phishing/spam:
- Do not click on links in the email or reply to the email.
- Reach out to the sender by other means (for example, via chat or phone, or in person) to confirm whether they did legitimately send the message.
- Report it as spam/phishing in Gmail.
Please do not hesitate to contact the InfoDesk at email@example.com to report phishing attempts or obtain more information.
