 Avoiding E-mail Scams

Solution

E-mails can circulate claiming to be from Africa University Staff, Administration, Help Desk etc etc.  The ICT Dept encourages users to carefully scrutinize all e-mail they receive from both trusted and untrusted sources.
 
Also it is discouraged to send unnecessary chain e-mails or jokes with bulk email addresses as they provide a good source for email address harvesters.
 
The screenshot below educates you on some of the things to look out for when you receive an e-mail as its contents can be quite deceptive. Also included are the options you can take to report and block such senders. If in doubt of an e-mail please contact ICT for further assistance.
