Please be advised that there is an active phishing attempt email being circulated among the SFA community.

If you need help with this, please call the Help Desk at 936-468-HELP (4357).  


Phishing attempts often come in groups – be on guard for additional suspicious emails, and contact “supposed” senders such as university personnel, your bank or credit card, etc. directly using a known, confirmed method to verify if a questionable email is legitimate. As always, be alert for signs of phishing – an unexpected email attachment from an unusual source, a sense of fear/urgency, asking for account credentials or financial information, using an unfamiliar greeting or sketchy email address, and spelling or grammar errors.


Thank you to the recipients who quickly brought this to our attention!
