Faculty and Staff Login Verification (scam alert)

This is a standard phishing scam message, designed to steal your passwords or account information. (We have deactivated the dangerous link, as we always do here at scamhunter.org.) Phishing messages are often sent from hacked email accounts, so you should always assume than any real person named in the message isn’t connected with it (and probably doesn’t even know the messages are going out from their hacked account). Messages of this kind work by tricking you into visiting a phony website — “bravenetwebbysite33” in this case — and then telling you to enter your username and password. The scammers then take your username and password and use them for their own nefarious purposes.
