Information Security Notice
LMU has seen an increased number of fraudulent emails designed to trick recipients into clicking links, opening attachments, or taking other actions since the start of COVID-19.
Specifically, there have been a large number of attempted Email Impersonation Scams, where the sender impersonates a member of LMU personnel in a position of authority. They request for the target to perform money transfers, pay invoices, or send sensitive data.
