This recent phishing attempt incorporates familiar logos to appear more official.

An elaborate phishing scam requesting that users access documents related to a 2018 salary increase is hitting UARK inboxes. The subject line of this email is: "FYI: Salary Increase Document." A link inside the email pulls up a sign on box requesting UARK login credentials. A second box then appears requesting your bank account information.

If you receive email of this type, do not follow the link and do not respond to the email. Forward the email to security@uark.edu. Want to know if you are a target for phishing scams? Learn what to watch for here.
