The online safety and security of the University of Guelph community is our top priority. One of the most common methods for cyber criminals to access your personal information is through email phishing scams, where they attempt to lure you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment, try to convince you to share your identity information (e.g. passwords), or try to infect your system with malware.
If you receive a suspected a phishing attempt:
- Do not respond or open any links in the email until you have confirmed it is safe.
- Check the list of recent scams and phishing attempts below.
- If the message you received is not the list, please tell us. Forward the message to the CCS Help Centre at IThelp@uoguelph.ca
