Viruses, Scams and Malware

Description:
Viruses, Scams, and Malware can come from a variety of sources. You can receive an email from someone impersonating someone you know, where the email address is just slightly off. Or you may receive a message directly from their account because their account has been compromised. The best protection is to question links and email that you did not ask for and were not expecting. If it sounds too good to be true, it is mostly likely a scam. Be cautious giving any personal information in an email request.

Any phishing, scam, questionable, or just plain weird email should be sent to phish@widener.edu. We’ll gladly check whether it’s real or a scam.

Who can request service:
Members of the Widener University community including Students, Faculty and Staff.
