Open
Brief Description:
Scam alert: Watch out for fake emails and phone calls offering COVID-19 financial benefits. Scammers are targeting New York universities using legitimate marketing sites to create official-looking forms sent from a fake university email address.
Current Status:
Always verify the sender of an email, particularly before completing any financial transactions. If you receive a suspicious email or phone call: 1. Do not click on the links, fill out the forms, or give personal information over the phone. 2. Report suspected phishes to the IT Security Office. 3. Check official-looking emails against the list of Verified Cornell Communications (https://it.cornell.edu/verified-cornell-communications) and search the Phish Bowl (https://it.cornell.edu/phish-bowl) to see if it is a known scam.
