If you receive a suspicious email

  • Do not click any links in the suspicious message.
  • Do not reply to the suspicious message.
  • Do not provide your log-in information or passwords to anyone.

Instead, please help us determine its authenticity by taking one of the following actions:

What is email phishing?

Are you concerned that an email may not be from an official source? Have you received an email asking for personal information (usernames, passwords, credit card info, etc.) that purports to be sent from a UALR official?

The act of sending out emails or links that masquerade as official notices or queries is known as phishing.

Once you have determined that a message is indeed a phishing attempt, you may also use Google's Report Phishing tool within Google Mail to mark the message as suspicious. When enough people use the Report Phishing tool correctly, Google will automatically prevent similar messages from arriving in other UALR mailboxes.
