A wave of nationwide phishing scams is targeting college students, according to reports from Louisiana State University, University of Wisconsin-Platteville, Amherst College, Wellesley College, Dartmouth College and more.

Students have reported several different types of online scams. One involves emails that contain phony job opportunities and request one’s personal data, advised the Department of Homeland Security last month. The email pretends that it’s interested in hiring a person, then asks for sensitive information like one’s social security number or home address.

At Dartmouth College, several thousand students received emails that appeared to be from President Phil Hanlon. The messages included links to websites with malware. Recipients were advised not to click on the links.

On Thursday, Louisiana State University reported a spike in on-campus phishing scams. LSU IT Services Communications Officer Sheri Thompson said spam bots were sending out emails impersonating the university’s help desk.

“Be skeptical, be skeptical about any links that you get, any request for information that you get,” she advised. “Even if it says it’s coming from an LSU person, skeptical.”
