Targeted Blackboard Phishing Scam

Lorain Watters, Assistant News Editor

Another phishing e-mail message is currently being circulated around The University of Texas at El Paso. This message pretends to be from Blackboard and states that “An important course form has been posted…”. It then asks that you sign in to view the form. THIS IS NOT A LEGITIMATE EMAIL – it is designed to gather your UTEP login information.
