Beware! Phishing scam might be coming to your Lakeland inbox


Do you recognize this email? Beware!

Heather Ross, Staff Reporter

A suspected phishing scam is traveling through the Lakeland College email system. If you receive a message with the subject “Message from Staff Portal” which appears to be coming from [email protected], delete it. It is NOT a legitimate email from Lakeland College. Also, do not click on the link in the body of the message.

Phishing scams use email addresses which appear legitimate to obtain confidential (usually financial or identity related) information from the recipient. The best defense against having private information stolen is to delete these types of emails.

If you have any questions, contact the IT department at 920-565-1143 or ext 1143. You can also email them at [email protected] or stop in the office in the lower level of Brotz Hall.
