Spam Do’s and Don’ts
Please be aware that spam email may periodically end up in your mailbox. These types of messages may try to disguise themselves as authentic emails, by spoofing “From” addresses from people we know or known companies. They will ask you to send them personal informational because something might be wrong with your account, such as exceeded storage or insufficient information. Some messages might also ask you to help various causes by donating money or sending banking information.
It is important that you DO NOT respond to the request in the email as they are spam. In addition, for any suspicious email messages, DO NOT click on any of the links, attachments, or respond with any type of personal information.
How do I keep from falling victim to a spam message?

Legitimate sources such as ITS or Pace University will never ask for your personal information through email. Delete the email message from your Inbox and then permanently remove it from your Deleted Items folder.
