Be on the lookout for a pair of phishing scams hitting UAB inboxes. One claims to offer students and employees an opportunity to work at home, while another claims that a request to terminate your Office 365 account has been initiated.

The phishing emails include links that ask you to provide your credentials and contact information — which scammers then use to login to your account and even attempt to log in via the “call me” option for Duo two-factor authentication.

If an email seems suspicious, verify the sender by hovering over the email address or considering whether the sender is someone who would be making a job offer or asking you about your email account. Be suspicious of unsolicited forms.
