Phishing is an attempt to use electronic communications to fraudulently gain access to user information. A phishing email may ask for personal information, such as your password. You should never provide sensitive information by replying to the message or clicking on links within the message.
WPI community members can report suspected phishing email attempts to ITS for investigation. Including the email headers helps us quickly identify and track the source of the message.
Report phishing as follows:
- Create new email message
- Copy headers of phishing email (see Actions), paste headers into new email message
- Copy body of phishing email, paste into email message
- Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Delete suspected phishing email message
