Let’s review the basics:
- ITS staff will NEVER ask for your password via email. Neither will your bank, your employer or any reputable firm. Period.
- Any communication from Macalester's Information Technology Services will be from named individuals you can find in the online Directory and on campus. Legitimate communications from vendors will have your actual account numbers and other identifying information in them. Generic messages “account holder” or from "Account Administrator" are bogus.
- Any message that sounds too good to be true is too good to be true.
