Prevent Phishing Scams
Phishing attempts often look like an urgent message that tells you to click a link or open an attachment. For example:
- You will lose access to your account.
- You must confirm personal information or pay an invoice.
- You are eligible for a coupon or gift card.

Never Reply to Suspicious Messages
Use the Report Message button in Outlook if you think you have received a phishing email.
To verify a message appearing to come from a trusted source, open your web browser and go directly to the company or department website for their correct contact information.
If you provided personal information or entered your login information on a malicious site due to phishing attacks, change your UARK and other account passwords immediately.
