Phishing is when one receives fraudulent emails that appear to come from a legitimate source, such as one's bank or another trusted business. The emails ask customers to verify personal information or link to counterfeit web sites.
Banks will never ask you for personal information, such as account numbers or passwords in an email. Do not respond to any emails that direct you to update your personal information online or by dialing a telephone number. Use only the customer service numbers listed on your statements.
Hampshire IT has a Q&A about phishing. Contact the help desk if you have any questions about phishing. And remember, NEVER give out your username and password.
