Some Examples of Reported Phishing Emails

Fresh Phish is a list of phishing emails that the UTA community has received. These were likely reported to the Information Security Office and/or the Operational Security team and were confirmed to be a phishing message.

If you have received any of the messages listed below, do not follow the link(s) in the message; simply delete it. Then, do the following:

  1. If you have provided your NetID and/or password, reset it here (www.uta.edu/password) and report the event to the IT Help Desk (Report an Incident) 
    Report an issue

  2. If you clicked on a link provided in the message, contact your department's DSA or ISA to ensure your device is free of malware and viruses

  3. If you are unsure if the message you have received is legitimate or not, simply forward the message as an attachment to spam@uta.edu or phish@uta.edu and wait for a response about its legitimacy. 
  4. Learn how to spot phishing attempts

Depending on how long it takes for you to recognize that you have fallen victim, your account may already be used to propagate further phish attempts or spam. If malicious actors have been using your account to send a large number of phish attempts, or the IT Help Desk is informed that your account has been used for that purpose, your access may be blocked or locked.

This means that you either will not be able to reset your password OR after you do, you will be unable to log into services like your email. If this is the case for you, please call the IT Help Desk and let them know that your account was compromised and you'd like to regain access.

The emails listed on this site are only those that are reported to UTA Operational Security as phishing. You may likely receive phishing email messages that are not listed here; you should learn to identify phish emails and how to report them (see links above).

You may receive a phishing message whose text matches an example listed here, but has a different web link (that is a different phishing URL). Phishers will sometimes send out the same message to different email addresses, varying the url between a set of different phishing URLs.
