This recent phishing attempt uses 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. This email has the subject line “FYI: Salary Increase Document.” The message indicates that you have received a salary increase of 10% or higher in an effort to entice you to click the provided link for information. This link pulls up a sign-on box requesting UARK credentials, followed by a second box requesting bank account details.

If you receive email of this type, do not follow the instructions 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
