University Police and information security would like to remind the campus that phishing attempts can appear in many forms. The University Police received an advertising fax recently requesting a name, title, email address, business name and address, phone number, cell number, specialty and signature. This is a social engineering scam commonly used to steal funds through spoofing and business email exchanges. Any such advertising fax should be put in recycling when you get them. A legitimate business would not rely on faxes or cold emails requesting such information.
