6 Clues that reveal an email phishing scam


  1. Image was copied from the web.
  2. Sender's address is actually a compromised Wheaton College account.
  3. Official campus-wide communications from President Rosenberg are usually distributed by his staff, using official Macalester lists: Faculty-announce-l, Student-announce-l, Staff-announce-l.
  4. Brian Rosenberg writes good English prose, unlike this awkward salutation.
  5. Signature is copied from the President's webpage and is not his email signature.
  6. Slow down. Don’t click on attachments when you are busy and have little time to concentrate.
