Phishing Attempts

Every year, the ACMS Help Desk receives reports of phishing and spam attempts asking for personal information, including but not limited to:

  • Any UCSD username
  • Any UCSD password
  • Your Social Security Number
  • Your bank account or credit card number
  • Your date of birth
  • Do NOT, under any circumstances, share your personal information. UCSD will never ask you for your password directly via email, and in general, you should never send sensitive information in an email.

    If you have mistakenly responded to the email, please change your password immediately using the global password change tool: http://acs.ucsd.edu/account-tools/gpasswd.shtml
