Email Safety

Please remain vigilant and sceptical when receiving unsolicited emails.

You may have received an email this morning, seemingly from the Principal, requesting that you transfer BITCOIN funds to him.

Please delete that email.

The email attempted to spoof Sir Ian Diamond’s email address. The Principal’s IT account was not hacked or attacked; this is someone using his name.

Please remain vigilant and sceptical. You can review our guidelines for dealing with and identifying email scams at http://www.abdn.ac.uk/staffnet/working-here/it-security.php

Thank you to those who were aware that this was a spoof, and reported it to the IT Service Desk.
