New Blackboard Phishing Email

bb_phishing

The above phishing email has been reported by several members of the Northeastern community. This email, like many phishing emails, attempts to trick the user into clicking on a link that supposedly points to an official Northeastern website. If you hover your mouse over the link you will notice that the link does not point to a Northeastern website.

This email takes the scam a step further by adding a fake time constraint that forces the user to take immediate action rather than stop and consider the veracity of the message.

If you receive this email please do not click on the link and delete it from your inbox.

Please contact the Service Desk at help@neu.edu or 617-373-4357 for assistance.
