IT Services has detected a number of emails sent to staff and students asking them to confirm their username and password. These emails are fraudulent - the technique is known as “phishing”. We didn’t send them, and we would never ask you for your password, for any purpose.
Unfortunately, a few individuals have responded to the recent phishing attempts, and in one case the account details were used in an attempt to perpetrate financial fraud.
