Fight Back Against Spam!

|

Spam happens. But there are ways to combat it!

Spam in Outlook

Phishing is any email sent from a cybercriminal looking to steal your passwords, information, or data. Savvy cybercriminals will send very authentic-looking emails, looking to charm or alarm you into believing immediate action must be taken.

If you believe you have received a phishing email, do not click on any links or reply to the email, but forward it to abuse@uthsc.edu.

Spam in RingCentral

Like you get robocalls on your cellphone, RingCentral calls can be spam. It may seem that you’re getting more calls, but it’s because your phone is with you all the time. You have a few choices:

  1. Answer the phone, and then hang up if the call is not relevant.
  2. Block the number.
  3. If you don’t recognize the number, don’t answer, let it go to voicemail, and then check your voicemail to see if it is a call you need to return.
