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.

If you receive this or any other suspicious e-mail, please delete it or contact Tech Support.

Our contact information is:

On-Campus: ext. 6137

Off-Campus: 281-998-6137

Thank you for your help.
