Phishing and scam emails are becoming trickier and more numerous all the time. Every day, the arms race intensifies: scam blockers find new ways to block these emails, and scammers find new ways to get around these measures - and so the cycle continues. Scammers want your information, and they will use every trick in the book to get it.
While Drexel University tags and filters out most of these scams, some occasionally show up in your Drexel inbox before the system catches up. Some scams, via devious means, bypass Drexel's filters altogether. It's up to the user - YOU - to learn how to recognize these scams and DELETE THEM.
Below, you will find links to real examples of scam emails, as well as tips for recognizing them.
NOTE: As new types of scams appear, IRT will update these pages as necessary. This is by no means an exhaustive list - there are many, many more scams than those appearing here.
