A fake message was sent out to numerous university email addresses claiming that user’s email mailbox was almost full and asking them to click a link to resolve the problem. This is easily identifiable as a phishing attempt as the email is sent from a non-Pacific email address and the link takes users to a non-Pacific website. Users should delete the message.

If you have clicked the link in this message and entered your email credentials, please contact the Technology Information Center right away at 503-352-1500 or by email at help@pacificu.edu.

To learn more about how to identify phishing messages, please see the short video on the UIS website.
