Phish Bowl

The following emails are phishing attempts that have been reported by the Brown community. We advise that you do the following:

  • If you received one and do not see it here, please forward it to PhishBowl@brown.edu (after stripping off any attachments) so that the phishing email can be added to the page.
  • If you received the same email but from a different Brown address than shown, please forward it to us so that we can attend to the new compromise.
  • If you received one already posted here, please report it as phishing to the Gmail team (from within the message, click on the down arrow to the right of the REPLY button and select "Report phishing") or simply delete it.
  • More about phishing at brown.edu/go/phishing and What to do When You Spot a Phish.

This particular phish arrived with an attachment. Do not open it. Instead, report it as phishing. Not sure how? Read What to do when you spot a phish.

Periodically we receive reports of the datemyschool.com email. The email is most probably legitimate (Norton Safe Web declares it safe), the result of leveraging the sender's contact list. ISG therefore recommends treating it as spam.
