Look out for scammers who access your email rules

 

Scammers are trying creative ways to get to your money — including gaining access to your email account to set up a mail rule to capture your payroll emails. If your BlazerID is compromised, a scammer could get access to your email and set up a mail rule in Outlook that forwards your payroll emails to a different account — and helps the scammer get access to your paycheck.

With mandatory 2-factor authentication enabled through Duo, UAB campus users are less likely to have their credentials compromised — but you should remain vigilant against phishing attempts.

Learn how to check your mail rules in Outlook in the video above, and if you suspect an email is a phish, don’t click any links or enter your BlazerID and password — simply forward the email to phishing@uab.edu.
