Email scam targeting Library clients

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” or Web Services Manager  “Gaith Bader”.

The email asks people to click on a link which redirects them to a bogus webpage that looks similar to the Library’s “Login to Library eResources” 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 Library in any way.

Anyone who receives the email should delete it immediately.

If people have 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.
