Phishing attempt

What is it?

Phishing is an identity-theft scam that uses fake emails and websites to trick people into giving out personal information, such as credit card numbers, usernames and passwords, or social security numbers. Phishing is usually done by hijacking the identity of a bank or an online store in a spoofed email that is sent to large numbers of people. The email will usually contain a link to a webpage designed to look just like a real business.  A phishing scam will use this page to capture any information that you provide, then sell or use the information for malicious purposes.

A good way to know that an e-mail is fake and not from SCC E-mail address. SCC will have a message from any user outside of the college that states: "CAUTION: This email originated from outside of the college. Do not click links or open attachments unless you recognize the sender and know the content is safe."
