The Internet is awash with bogus emails containing viruses, malicious code or attempts to 'phish' your details by requesting you to 'revalidate' your account and appearing to come from the University, Student Loans Company, businesses, banks, and other carriers, friends,colleagues and other staff and students in the University etc.
Please treat All unsolicited email with suspicion, even if the sender appears to be an organisation or person that you think you can trust. If you are in any doubt whether opening something is safe, contact the IT Helpdesk. The University will NEVER ask you for your details via e-mail
Please be aware that scammers can call you on the phone pretending to be some form of support service like the IT Helpdesk, Microsoft or other company. If you are in any doubt of the identity of a caller please contact the Helpdesk directly yourself.
