Beware of phishing phone calls on campus

Some members of the UAB campus community have reported phishing phone calls from scammers who indicate there are IT problems.

One call indicated the user's IP address had been compromised. This is a common phone scam designed to try to get users to give personal information or to give access to their computer to the malicious callers. 

If you receive a suspicious call, please contact your departmental IT representative or AskIT at 205-996-5555. On-campus IT representatives can help determine if there is truly a problem with your computer.
