Fraudulent Emails

From time to time you are likely to receive email messages asking for your PLU email account password. These messages claim to have been sent from a PLU tech support address, but they are in fact fraudulent attempts (often called phishing scams) to obtain your login information. 

PLU will NEVER ask you to reveal your password or other such personal information via email! Never share your password with anyone, ever.  If you have questions about the authenticity of emails, contact the Help Desk at or 253-535-7525. 

For information, check out the Cyber Safety page which contains links to examples of these kinds of fraudulent emails.
