Beware of phishing scams

Protect yourself against "phishing" scams perpetrated over the Internet by email or instant message senders pretending to be legitimate companies.

  • Be cautious about opening attachments or links in email, IM or social networking messages (such as Facebook), even if you know the sender.
  • Avoid clicking AgreeOK or I Accept in banner ads, unexpected pop-up windows or virus infection warnings.
  • Download software ONLY from websites you trust. Be cautious of "free" offers of music, games, videos, etc. These files are notorious for containing malware and viruses.
  • Do NOT respond to email messages or instant messages (no matter how legitimate they appear) that direct you to visit a web site that is outside of Notre Dame to change your password, to download software patches, or to make purchases.
  • Do NOT click on Internet links that may be included in these messages. Delete the emails immediately!
  • As a rule of thumb, you should assume that any unsolicited email attempting to gain personal information, or especially trying to convince the recipient to click on a web link to update this information, is from an untrustworthy source.
  • Any offer of goods or services claiming an affiliation with Notre Dame should be viewed with great skepticism. Any official relationship with companies offering goods or services will be CLEARLY identified in any sales or marketing effort, and few if any will be advertised by email.
  • Messages referencing popular brands -- Microsoft, AOL, Best Buy, eBay, or PayPal, or the name of a well-known, for example -- in the address lines and other parts of the message are often ploys to steal personal information or to trick you into downloading a malicious program or giving away your password.
