UD Email Update Scam

It may look like an official UD notice–but it’s a scam.

Email claiming that there’s been an update to UD email update is a scam. Click the smaller image for a larger version.

How can you tell?

If you read carefully, you’ll see that the email talks about UD Webmail and apparently gives a URL for use by UD Exchange users. Further, if you are using a computer, you can hover your mouse over the links and see that they really would take you to a pharming site to harvest your UD Account information.

Oh, look! The email warns you, “Beginning on Wednesday, March 27th, 2012, the new webmail application becomes the default for all users.” But today is Wednesday, March 27, 2013.

And they got the URL wrong for the IT Support Center. And that fake URL would lead to the pharming site anyway.

See this message or one like it? Just delete it. Log in to the UD email service you use in the usual way to check on your account. Alternatively, contact the IT Support Center if you have a question.
