Watch Out For This Fake Penn State Phishing Email
— Penn State (@penn_state) May 26, 2017
Besides being riddled with typos, the email asks students to enter private banking or credit card information within 24 hours of receiving the message or their “Penn account” will be temporarily suspended due to the “Penn state university billing department verification process.” The link leads to a bogus online payment site and is clearly an attempt to steal private information.
If you do receive the message, simply delete it. Students who do click on the link are asked to immediately change their Penn State passwords on the university’s password management site
