Most Recent Phishes and Scams

Phishing is a scam where a deceptive email or text message is used to trick you into providing confidential information such as your username and password. This is often done through an email that appears to come from an official source such as ITaP but contains a link that goes to a copy of Purdue's login page or Microsoft's Office login page.

Below is a list of some of the recent phishing and scam emails we've seen. If you would like to learn more about how to spot phishing and scam emails, see the Purdue News article on how to spot scams and phishing.
