Phishing is a commonly used online scam that attempts to trick you into providing your personal information such as your Login ID and Password, credit card number or Social Security Number. Phishing attacks use email and/or malicious websites (clicking on a link) to collect personal and financial information or infect your machine with malware and viruses.
Remember: Google/Gmail will never send you an email to ask you for your login information and password via email or web form unless you are signing in to Gmail. Anyone asking for this type of information via email is undoubtedly a fraud.
Successful phishing scams can have severe consequences not only to the individual whose account has been compromised (personal risk) but also to Gallaudet University (institutional risk).
