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.
