Be on the lookout for emails asking you to validate your SecureAccess Washington (SAW) account credentials. These are part of a new phishing scam, and SAW administrators will never send you an email asking for validation of account details.
Here are tips to help you spot a phishing email.
If you’ve identified an email as a phishing scam, follow these steps.
- Be cautious of the sender: Anyone can pretend to be anyone in emails and on the internet. Email from an important-looking sender could actually be a trick.
- Don’t open, don't click: Don’t open emails from unknown senders, and don’t click on unknown links. No legitimate company or entity would direct you to click on attachments or links for critical information.
- Delete! Delete the emails, and empty your deleted items.
- Notify DES IT Support 4U: If you receive any unusual emails or attachments, or come across unusual online activity, contact DES IT Support 4U, 360-407-2244.
