The Office of Information Technology has seen a recent increase in scams where a fake email account is made to look like it belongs to an Auburn student or employee. The sender then asks for help with an urgent purchase and requests that the recipient purchase gift cards and send the codes back via email. Scammers work hard to make these emails look legitimate, so be extra vigilant in checking who is making requests. And when in doubt, never send gift card images or codes via email.
