College issues phishing warning


Bermuda College is notifying the general public about a phishing email in circulation, referencing a price inquiry, and requesting recipients to provide information to the College. The College’s IT Department has said the fraudulent email is one that typically is sent under the guise of a known sender, and carries an attachment that one is invited to open. The name of College President, Dr. Duranda Greene is mentioned in this instance, along with her pictures, and a deadline is included to convey a sense of urgency.

The College was alerted Monday morning to the phishing attempt and has, accordingly, contacted the Bermuda Police Service. The College is asking anyone who receives the email, which also uses the old College logo, to not open the attachment, take a screen shot and send it to support@college.bm, before deleting it.
