Internet Scams and Identity Theft Prevention

You should be on the alert for individuals seeking to obtain personal information through illegitimate means. One such means is commonly referred to as “phishing.” In a common type of phishing scam, individuals receive emails that appear to come from their financial institution. The email may look authentic, right down to the use of the institution’s logo and marketing slogans. The emails often describe a situation that requires immediate attention and then warn the account will be terminated unless the email recipients verify their account information immediately by clicking on a provided link. The link will take the email recipient to a screen that asks for account information. While it may appear to be a page sponsored by a legitimate financial institution, the information will actually go to the con artist who sent the email. You should never respond to such requests. KHESLC will never ask you to verify account information online. Do not be intimidated by emails that warn of dire consequences for not following their instructions. Please call KHESLC if you receive any such email purporting to be from KHESLC.

The USDE Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and Federal Student Aid (FSA) have opened a new website to combat identity theft. The website, http://www.ed.gov/misused, offers tips to prevent and report identity theft. An email address, oig.hotline@ed.gov, and telephone hotline, 1-800-MISUSED, have also been established to report cases or suspicion of identity theft.
