IU will never ask for critical, sensitive information over email.
If you received a phishing message on April 6 with the subject line “Re: IU Employee Support Program,” please do not click on the links in the message. This was an actual phishing message intended to do harm.
“Green Dot COVID-19 Benefits” referenced in the message is a scam, and we urge you to always be wary when a message asks for personal information. Please remember that no one at IU will ever ask you for critical, sensitive information over email (such as your Social Security number, driver’s license number, etc.).
If you submitted information to the phishing site linked from the email, immediately contact the University Information Policy Office at email@example.com and your local IUPD campus office.
