Avoiding Phishing Scams
These types of phishing scams are common at this time of year. To avoid such campaigns that could result in a security breach, identity theft or financial loss:
- Approach all unsolicited offers and communications with skepticism and caution
- Do not follow unsolicited links or download attachments from unknown sources
- Always compare a link in an email to the link you are actually directed to and determine if it matches and will lead you to a legitimate site
- Refer to advisories posted at security.cuny.edu under "CUNY Issued Security Advisories"
