Did you know you’ve exceeded your email storage limit? Well, you probably haven’t, but these scammers would like you to believe otherwise.
This phish comes to us from firstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll notice that this address isn’t a udel.edu one, yet it’s attempting to represent UD. That’s red flag #1.
The email also calls you “University of Delaware Webmail subscriber” instead of your actual name. UD systems know your name (I know, soon it’ll turn into Skynet, but we aren’t there yet). Red flag #2.
Our friend, cmorales, also encourages you to click a link to zednet.php5.sk, which obviously isn’t a udel.edu domain. Oh, and why are we asked to verify our accounts through shady external websites if we’re over our storage limit? Shouldn’t we just delete some emails? Red flag #3.
So after all of that, where are we? Hopefully still looking at this email. If you aren’t, and if you clicked the link, you’ll have seen a page like the one on the left. In the unfortunate event you gave cmorales your UDel email information, you should go to www.udel.edu/network/ (note the udel.edu domain name) and change your email password ASAP. If you can’t, call the IT Support Center at (302) 831-6000 or submit a help ticket at http://www.udel.edu/it/help/request/.
