Alert: Phishing Attempt

You may receive e-mails that ask for your account details.

Please delete these e-mails, do not reply and remember –

We will never ask for your username and password details in an e-mail.

It is also a violation of the College’s IT security policy to surrender your username and password details in this manner.

Hackers will use your account details to take control of your e-mail account and our systems to send tens of thousands of spam messages around the world.

This results in legitimate College e-mail being banned from being received, failure of our internal systems and substantial expense in clean up.

The phishing e-mail currently being sent to the College is as follows:
