Several users have reported getting an email, appearing to be sent from the LLCC helpdesk, asking the user to click on a link to confirm their account for upgrade. This email is NOT from our ITS department and is a phishing attempt to acquire users logon credentials. Please disregard this message and delete the email. If you have already given your information, you should login to web advisor and change your password.
Phishing is a common identity theft method used by fraudulent parties. NEVER send your personal information including passwords, user IDs, credit card numbers or a Social Security Number via email. Passwords should NEVER be shared with ANYONE in any form.
To learn more about “phishing”, follow the links below:
Information and Telecommunication Systems (ITS) does not solicit passwords or any other personal information via e-mail. If you receive an e-mail message that appears to come from ITS that requests this type of information, please forward it immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not reply or click on any links. Again, these e-mails are often hoaxes (“phishing” e-mails), part of identity theft and fraud scams.
Thank you for your patience,
