University accounts across the nation are being increasingly targeted by phishing attacks, spam, or other malicious emails. Many of these are stopped from reaching you, but there is always the chance that some will make it past email filters. Criminals use them to try to gain access to your personal information and sometimes university resources. These email attacks generally use urgent language to get you to provide important account information such as usernames, passwords, credit card, and bank account information. They generally contain grammatical or typographical errors or direct you to non-OCU websites. If you are ever in doubt about whether the email is legitimate, please forward the email to IsItLegit@okcu.edu.
If you think your account may have been compromised or you have questions, please call the Helpdesk at 405-208-5555 for assistance.
