Phishing scams| March 24, 2014
Many people on campus have received an e-mail message pretending to be from binghamton.edu addresses with the subject "Account re-verification!!" The message indicates your account has exceeded the storage limit and threatens account deletion. It contains a link to a site asking for your user name and password. This is a phishing scam and if you received it you should ignore it and delete the message. A similar scam containing a link labeled "Properties.doc" is also circulating and should be deleted. If you clicked these links and provided your password, you should change your BMail password online
. Contact the Help Desk at 777-6420 if you need assistance changing your password. There is more about phishing scams on the ITS website
