Message from UBC Psychiatry IT: Increase in Fraudulent Emails to UBC Faculty and Staff


Please be aware that currently there are three dangerous e-mails being circulated to UBC members.

  • CRA refund (phishing – an attempt to get your credit card information)
  • “Request for commercial debt collection” (ransomware – makes all files on your computer unreadable)
  • Offers for face masks and thermometers (keylogger – steals all text that you type, including passwords; also captures screenshots of what you are doing)

Please delete any of them immediately, without clicking attachments or following the links.
