Scam artists in the U.S. and around the world attempt to defraud millions of people each year, including members of the S&T community. Some of the most common fraud attempts reported by our students, faculty and staff occur online or over the phone. By familiarizing yourself with common methods of fraud, and reporting these attempts to the proper authorities, you can help to ensure your safety and the safety of others.
If you believe you've been the victim of internet fraud or cyber crime, report it. You can file a complaint with the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
If you believe you have received a suspicious request targeting S&T students, faculty or staff, report it to the university police. If the request was received via email, also notify IT Security.
