Original Phishing Message

Subject: Re: *** IT Report ***

Where Did the Link Lead?

The link foreversentiments[.]com/as led to a fake Outlook Web App login page. Always hover over links to see where they lead. Do not enter your credentials on websites you do not recognize or on online forms.

Tips for Detection

  • Notice the sender’s email is not @pugetsound.edu and the odd subject line.
  • An email platform (e.g. Outlook) is not typically where you would access pay slips. The inconsistency in what is changing should be a red flag.
  • Be aware of what tools the university provides. If phishing messages mention tools no longer provided or supported, that should be a red flag.
  • Notice the false sense of urgency (e.g. “MIGRATE immediately”)
