It came to the Library’s attention that there is a fraudulent email scam targeting Library clients.
Some of our clients received an email that appears to be coming from the University of Sydney Librarian “Anne Bell”.
The email informs users that their accounts have expired and provides a link to reactivate their accounts. The link redirects them to a bogus webpage that looks similar to a Library’s “Login web page.
If a client inputs their UniKey details on that page their account credentials will be compromised.
The email and web page are not affiliated with the University of Sydney. Anyone who receives the email should delete it immediately.
If anyone entered their information on the web page, they should contact ICT as soon as possible and report a possible compromise and change their UniKey password.
