Phishing is an online scam involving emails with a clickable link that appear to be from a trusted source. By clicking a phishing link, you may compromise your WMU Bronco NetID and allow access to change your personal data within GoWMU. You could also allow viruses or other malware to infect your computer. For more information on what harm can be caused, see phishing facts. For additional information on keeping safe online, please see security awareness. If you have any questions about whether or  not the message you received is phishing, contact your unit IT support person or the Technology Help Desk

Below are phishing messages that have been received at Western Michigan University. They are entered here as they are received, however do not assume that because the message you received has not been posted here (yet), that it is safe to assume it is a valid message. If you receive a message that appears to be a phishing attempt (Always hover your mouse pointer over the link it contains to see where it will actually take you if you click it. On a mobile device you can long press the link to view the destination). If the actual URL does not match the displayed link text, do not click it. Forward the message as an attachment to and then flag the message as "Phishing" in your email. Visit the Help Desk website for instructions on how to forward the message as an attachment.
