    Hi all,

    I received this over the SEC4LIB listserv about phishing attempts using faux library emails. Some of these emails are well crafted compared to the usual phishing scams that I’ve seen.

    any universities across the country have been targeted with phishing
    emails that warn their students that their “Library Account” is going
    to expire. As with so many cybercrime issues, these crimes could be
    addressed much differently if the Powers That Be were aware that these
    were not individual cases, but an on-going campaign across victims
    across the country!

    Towards that end, they’ve collected full text examples of many of
    these phish, with links to the University web pages where there
    students have been warned. Hopefully we can start warning people of
    national on-going campaigns like this BEFORE they are victimized!
