Reporting Spam/Phishing Email

Issue/Question

What do I do when I get emailed spam or a phishing scam?

Resolution

 Note: If you have responded to a phishing email with any of your information (such as username, password, or otherwise), follow these instructions.

Phishing Scams

  1. Check the Phish Bowl for the scam email.
  2. If you see the email listed on the Phish Bowl, it has been reported by someone else and you can delete the message. If you don't see the email on the Phish Bowl, please forward the phishing message to phish@wku.edu.
  3. Delete the message.

Spam

You can mark individual emails as junk to help train the system to reduce the likelihood of receiving similar unwanted messages in the future:

  1. Open the undesired email.
  2. Click the (More actions) button in the top-right corner of the message.
  3. Select Mark as junk.
