Safety Tip of the Week:

Phishing Scams in Cyber Space

Phishing is a form of identity theft. It is used by a cyber thief to steal your good name and credit rating. It is the act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into providing private information. The e-mail usually directs the user to visit a Website where they are asked to provide personal information, such as passwords, credit card, social security and bank account numbers. The Website is bogus and set up only to steal the user’s information.

If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666 or if calling from a campus phone dial 8-6666.
