Reminder: Beware of telephone phishing scams

Monday, November 14, 2016 - 08:46


Remember to be vigilant for telephone phishing scams that attempt to trick you into divulging sensitive personal data. These scams may take the form of an automated message claiming that a lawsuit has been filed against you, a call claiming to provide technology support, or even calls claiming to be from the FBI to discuss student loans or dues, delinquent taxes, or overdue parking tickets.

CSSD strongly recommends that you do not reply to unsolicited phone calls or emails from unverifiable sources. More information about phishing is available at our Web site at Please contact the 24/7 Help Desk at 412-624-HELP [4357] if you have any questions regarding this announcement.
