Phish Alert: Message Titled "Urgent"

Good Morning Lumberjacks,

Please be advised that there is another active phishing attempt email being circulated among the SFA community. This email appears to come from an SFA student ( email account notifying the recipient they have received an urgent email concerning payroll taxes. If you receive these emails or emails with different subject lines but similar content, please do not click on any links or attachments, and delete the email. If you have already clicked on the link, please change your mySFA password immediately. 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!
