Stay Protected

What are phishing scams?

Phishing scams are designed to look legitimate and trick you into disclosing private information such as your Social Security number, credit card numbers, or accounts and passwords. Scammers use language designed to get you to act right away. Phishing emails may not only look authentic, but may include a familiar sender's name and/or email address in the "From" field.

Fake online web forms

Scammers frequently redirect the links in their phishing emails to fake ("cloned") online forms, which may look real, but are hosted by external online web services.  Unsuspecting victims are fooled into disclosing their passwords and other account information via these forms, which the scammers can then use for profit or to gain further access to your other accounts.

How Pace University addresses suspicious emails

Pace University has strong protocols in place to catch and filter out most incoming spam. A warning message is added to the beginning of all email messages containing embedded web addresses from identified web form hosting sites.
