Let's face it, you will receive emails from time to time that look real, maybe have official looking seals, logos and might even be people you do business with so they seem genuine. Heck maybe they even say its from IT&S at Guilford College. But, if they are asking you for your personal information, they're not real - its a spammer phishing for whatever they can get from you. They will send these messages to college students during busy times of the year when you are more apt to respond out of haste.
Avoid being scammed! JUST DELETE THESE EMAILS.
NO reputable site will EVER ask for your account information in an e-mail. That includes banks, mortgage companies, Government agencies, Guilford College IT&S, Google, etc.
Be aware of unsolicited messages. Be cautious of any message that asks for your personal information or takes you to a webpage asking for personal information.
If you receive anything claiming to be administrators from anybody at Guilford College IT&S, or Google, do not provide the information requested. We will never ask you for this.

If you fall victim to an email scam, change your passwords immediately. We don't just mean one, all of them, since users tend to reuse a favorite password for other sites. Then contact IT&S so we can help you look at your account to tell if it's been modified or hacked further.
