Phishing

 

Fraudulent emails known as phishing scams pose as your financial institution or other trusted business in order to obtain your personal and financial information. Phishing is a particularly devious scam because it attempts to exploit the relationship of trust that you have with those businesses.

 

 

How did the phisher get my email address?

The email addresses used could have been gathered from publicly available places such as the MSU faculty/staff and student directories. Also, not all the individuals that receive the email will be our members. The individuals behind the Phishing incident are just hoping to find a match of our members in the email database that they have created.

 

 

The best way to fight phishing is to stay informed. Help protect yourself from online fraud. Learn how to spot and report fraudulent emails, how to recognize a secure website, and what to do if you are a victim of fraud.
