Anti-Phish Tip #2

If you didn't expect it, reject it!

If you didn't expect it, reject it!

Don't click unexpected links

THE TRAP: You receive an unexpected email that claims to be from the "Help Desk" or someone you know. It says it's urgent. You must click a link to prevent problems with your account.

YOUR DEFENSE: Be skeptical of any email that you aren't expecting. Password thieves may insist that immediate action is necessary and may pretend to be your friend or some other trusted entity. Don't let these tactics trick you into letting down your guard. It is very likely a scam.

Remember: Only You can Protect your CalNet Passphrase!
