Email Phishing Scams! DO NOT REPLY!

This news item expired February 9, 2009. It may contain out-of-date information.
Some Iowa State email accounts are receiving variations of email alleging to be from "IASTATE.EDU SUPPORT TEAM", "VERIFICATION TEAM", "Admin Help Desk" (helpdesk @ iastate.edu), and other similar senders, asking users to verify their password or other personal information by replying to the message or clicking on a link. These emails are a scam. Do not reply to or click on links in these emails!

If you do reply with your password, immediately go to https://asw.iastate.edu/cgi-bin/acropolis/user/password, and change your password.

Iowa State University, IT Services, or the Solution Center will never ask you to send your password or other confidential personal information via email.
