Here are some tips on how to check if the email or text message that you have received is actually a phishing attempt.
- The Dean and other directors from UBC will not send you email from a non UBC email address
- Emails from Workday and UBC users will not have the [CAUTION: Non-UBC Email] label at the top of the message
- If you receive Workday messages, the best practice is to use the mobile app on your phone or your web browser on your computer to login to Workday rather than clicking on the link in an email
- UBCIT will not send you emails about terminating your email account. If there is an issue, it will be locked without asking your permission
- The messages about reaching your email quota are legitimate, send a request to email@example.com if you receive such a notice
- If you receive a text (SMS) message asking for your help from the Dean or otherwise, verify the phone number, if it is not a local Vancouver number, it’s not from the Dean
