Email Phishing Scam Alert

Recently, several institutions have indicated an email phishing scam that requests a student to log into their campus portal via a link in their email to pay their overdue university bill. The portal in the email is not a portal to the actual school, but one created to emulate the school so that attackers can obtain personal and financial data. Please note, Iowa State University will never send direct links to AccessPlus, nor will we request personally identifiable information via an email. Always log into your AccessPlus from the www.iastate.edu homepage. If you receive a suspicious email, please contact the Solution Center at Iowa State.
