Debunking Email Scams

The items listed below are examples of recent phishing or other fake email scams (marked with the word "FAKE") that are being circulated.

Delete scam messages. Do not reply to them. Do not click on any links or attachments they contain. Never EVER give out your password, no matter who asks!

Note: It's always a busy year for scam emails, but occasionally a message that looks like a scam is actually very real and very important. Examples of real emails from Drexel IT are also shown below and marked with the word "REAL."

Subject: Hello

These messages are "spoofs" of actual offices. They impersonate individuals within these offices in an attempt to get information or a response. Be very wary of unexpected emails even from people you know, and find another method to confirm their identity.

Subject: INCIDENT: ???????? (REF:IN:????????)

A rash of phishing scams masquerading as "Drexel IT" is making the rounds. These emails look very similar to our real emails from the RemedyForce Service Desk. However, Drexel IT will NEVER ask for your password, and you should NEVER give it to anyone, no matter who asks.
