ITS Help Desk has received dozens of reports in a very short time (THANK YOU) about an "Alert" message appearing to come from "Alissa A Landi" and your "Mail administrator!" (with an exclamation point, lol). THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT CLICK THE LINK and definitely do not submit your credentials. If Deb Meyer never runs out of email space, your account is probably safe!

  • If you received this message from "Alissa A Landi", please DELETE and have a great weekend!
  • If you receive this message from any other sender, please REPORT it to the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@uwplatt.edu.
  • If you clicked the link and/or submitted your credentials, please CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD IMMEDIATELY and contact the ITS Help Desk for more information.
Not sure what to look for?  Check out the real-life examples we have mocked up in the ITS Knowledge Base at campus.uwplatt.edu/go/phish
