Reminder to students: Watch for scams and phishing

UW-Green Bay students, stay alert! Scammers are taking advantage of the current coronavirus situation. They are monitoring the news and hoping to pray on your fears. UW-System has announced prorated room and board refunds and the scammers are aware of it as well.  Protect your account and think before you click.  For more information on the refunds, check out the FAQ. As always, if you question an email at all please forward it as an attachment to abuse@uwgb.edu and the IT Security team will verify it for you.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has a site dedicated to the scams that are being reported to them regarding coronavirus.  See Cornoavirus Scams: What the FTC is doing.
