Gift Card Scams at Penn

May 24, 2019
Penn’s Office of Information Security is continuing to see an increase in gift card phishing scams across campus.

Dear Penn Nursing Faculty, Staff and Students,

Penn’s Office of Information Security is continuing to see an increase in gift card phishing scams across campus where the scammer sends an email message to a member of the Penn community pretending to be a high-ranking administrator, e.g., School Dean or Administrator. If you receive one of these messages, you can simply delete it or report it to the ITS Service Desk (servicedesk@nursing.upenn.edu).

Thank you.
