Welcome to CCIT This Week, where we give you a rundown of news, tips, upcoming maintenance and more. This page will be updated throughout the week. Follow us on Twitter @ClemsonIT for daily information and timely updates.
Students—don’t get scammed! A new email scam targeting students promises a paycheck for office supplies. Another recent scam attempt is the “job offer scam” via email. These emails are typically for job offers or internships that promise a weekly paycheck of $300-$400. Typically in these email phishing campaigns, the cybercriminals are impersonating a Clemson professor. One of the indicators that it is not a legitimate email is that it is from a Gmail address instead of a clemson.edu account. Forward any suspicious email to email@example.com.
