May 29th, 2014

Boston University is currently seeing a flood of fishing messages pretending to be from BU.  These messages are scams.  The link to sends you to a web site that is not BU.EDU (you can see this for yourself if you hover your mouse over the link, or, if you’re on a smart phone, click and hold until the link is displayed).


If you see this message, delete it.  Did not click the link and do not login.
