If you are a student at the University of Liverpool you may have noticed a large number of suspicious emails being sent to you today from the university’s own @liverpool.ac.uk email address.
Many of these claim that you are the lucky winner of £500,000, or that you have been ‘specially chosen’ for a grand prize. Unfortunately, our wonderful university has not suddenly become very generous to its students; these emails are a scam and they’re designed to sucker people into giving over their private information to fraudsters.
Don’t worry there is no trapped prince who desperately needs your help, or a lottery win waiting for you to claim. If it sounds too good to be true – then it probably is!
Please delete any suspicious emails and inform the university computing services at : https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/csd/security/email-security/
