Phishing e-mail alert - Student Grant Information
by Rich Goodman - Tuesday, 17 July 2018, 10:33 AM
 


Please be advised that a phishing* e-mail is currently circulating the university, requesting for information to process grant payments.

Instead of asking for username and password details, the email is asking for users to provide bank details. If you have provided this information, please contact your bank immediately.

If you have received a similar e-mail, and have not provided your details, please do not engage any further and delete it. 

If the e-mail has been sent via a Gmail account, please block the sender immediately but do not block any Lboro.ac.uk email addresses. 

Where can I get more information and help?

Should you have any concerns or queries please email IT.Services@lboro.ac.uk

More information can be found on the IT Services website: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/it/student/security/phishing/

* Phishing is the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication.
