Online scams are on the rise. Help protect yourself and others by watching out for emails asking you to purchase a gift card. No one, including school administrators, will ever ask you urgently over email to purchase a gift card for them. If this does happen, verify the request in person.

A lot of scams and phishing happens over email. Here are some things you can look out for:

  • Verify Sender’s Email: Always double-check the sender’s email address. If it looks suspicious or unfamiliar, exercise caution.
  • Avoid Clicking Suspicious Links: Hover over links before clicking to preview the URL. If it seems unusual or redirects unexpectedly, refrain from clicking.
  • Guard Sensitive Information: Be cautious about sharing personal or sensitive info online, especially in response to unexpected requests.
