Phishing scam

There have been multiple reports about people receiving an e-mail similar to the one below that informs library users that their Illiad (Interlibrary Loan) account is expiring soon. This is not a legitimate e-mail from the Libraries or anyone else from the University. It is what is known as a Phishing scam. If you receive a similar message, please do not click on the link. If you already did, please change all of your Binghamton University passwords immediately. For more information about Phishing scams, see the web page ITS created that explains “What is Phishing?
