Phishing scam offers part-time work as trick to get your data

A phishing scam is targeting students, faculty, and staff claiming to offer part-time work or internship opportunities. The University Information Security Office says the intent of the scammer is to trick you into divulging your IU login credentials or providing a monetary payment. These recent messages may originate from legitimate IU.edu email addresses. Please be on the alert for these emails and do not respond to them.

 

Here are a few clues that the email is a phish:

  • The email is unsolicited
  • It asks for your personal information such as street address, date of birth, or mobile number
  • It asks you to provide your IU password or Duo passcodes
  • You are asked to go to a link that leads to a non-IU website that asks for your personal information
  • Its grammar and sentence structure are poor

 

What to do:

 

Remember:

  • Do not respond to unsolicited emails or texts from unverifiable sources
  • If you’re unsure of an email’s legitimacy, verify it through other means, e.g., by contacting the IU help desk
  • IU will never ask you for your password or Duo passcodes in email or in text messages
