Report a Phish
If you receive a suspicious or questionable email, try to verify its legitimacy. If you can’t verify the email or if you suspect that it’s a phishing scam, report it by forwarding it to email@example.com.
Step 1: Verify
You can attempt to verify an email’s content by contacting the alleged sender, your unit’s IT Professional, or the IT Support Center. If you contact the alleged sender, do so through a separate channel (such as in person or at a published phone number) rather than in a reply to the suspicious email.
You can also verify information by comparing it to known legitimate sources such as official Web sites or publications. For example, major University of Delaware news is likely to be featured on UDaily, and email about a major event could be verified by finding a UDaily story corroborating the information.
Step 2: Report
If you can’t verify the email’s sender or information or if you suspect that it’s a phishing attempt, report it by forwarding it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
When reporting a phishing scam, include the complete headers and, when possible, the original source text of the message in your email to email@example.com.
