Phishing Email Messages
What is a phishing message?
A phishing email attempts to steal your confidential information by directing you to a false website where you are asked to update personal information, such as a password. Please be aware that there are several of these phishing emails circulating within the Duquesne community that contain links to false sites that will ask you to enter your MultiPass Credentials. Beware: replying to these messages will ALWAYS result in your password being stolen.
