New hoax email being sent to university email.

There is currently a new hoax email that is going out through campus email.  It has a subject line of 'VERIFY' and says that there was access to your account by an Unknown IP address and tells you to click a link to verify their information.

This is not a legitimate email and is a hoax trying to scam users out of their login information.  If you receive this email, do NOT click the link and immediately delete the email.  If you have already clicked the link, immediately go to www.siue.edu/eid and change your password.

If you have any further questions, you can contact the Helpdesk at 618-650-5500.
