Latest Phishing Attempt

WHAT'S HAPPENING?
There are emails that are being circulated, an example of which is below, that include a suspicious link. These are not legitimate emails.


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?
If you receive an email like this, do not click on the link. If a phishing or spam email makes its way into your inbox, please forward it according to the directions at http://support.cc.gatech.edu/support-tools/faq/what-should-i-do-when-i-receive-spam-or-phishing-email to improve the accuracy of GT's filters.  You can learn to recognize phishing emails. They frequently contain poor grammar and unusual wording. Sometimes they will use a legitimate-looking email address, but they don't always. In some cases, there is a mismatch between the name and the email address in the From field. However, these are not always present. The tell-tale sign is to check without clicking the links to see where they point to. Phishing emails want you to visit a site with an unusual URL that has nothing to do with the purported sender. In the example below, the links point to a site unrelated to the purported sender.
