Report Fraudulent Messages

Question

I received a message to my BGSU email account that I believe may be fraudulent - what should I do?

Answer

  1. Don't respond/click on any of the links within the message.
  2. Forward the suspicious message to abuse@bgsu.edu. 
  3. Delete the message from your inbox.

Should the ITS security team determine that the email is fraudulent and being sent to a broad base of BGSU account holders and/or other known victims, and ITS Fraud Notice message will be sent out that will include a warning an more information about the suspicious message. Otherwise, the individual reporting the suspicious email may receive a direct message back from an ITS security analyst.
