We get a lot of spam at ACC. Your email address is a tempting target.
We get hundreds of these a week, so be smart about evaluating the authenticity of messages you receive.
Think before you click on reply or an attachment!
If a message looks fishy, it probably is. Some key indicators that a message might be spam:
- The Sent from name does not match the sent from email address
- The email address domain (like @arapahoe.edu) does not match the message, or seem legitimate
- Grammar may be sketchy
- Requests are unusual (asking for personal or work information, or purchases requested by someone unknown)
- There are more tell-tale signs, but trust your instincts. If something seems off about a message, it’s probably spam.
When you receive a suspected spam or phishing message, simply forward it to [email protected] email and the
security system will take over from there.
Any questions? Contact the ACC IT Helpdesk at 303-797-5900 or email [email protected] for further assistance.
