Tax Season - Phishing and Phone Scams
It’s tax season!!  You know what that means… Yes, more phishing emails and phone scams are making the rounds attempting to lure you or even scare you into divulging your personal, financial, and confidential information.
We block several thousand phishing emails daily, but there are a few that occasionally make it through the filters, so it is important to always stay alert!
  • If you receive a phishing message, please do not respond to the message, do not click on any links, and delete it from your mailbox. 
  • If you receive a phone call from a threatening or even a “nice” person or automated message identifying themselves as the IRS or other tax agency demanding immediate payment, credit/debit card information or other suspicious information, you have the power to hang up the phone
A few of our faculty and staff members recently received an email asking them to update and validate their IRS E-file information.  The messages they received are phishing messages. Thank you to those of you that notified us directly or through the use of the Phish Alert Button of the emails you received.
