I just received an email from [email protected] titled "Life in Oxford: The Virtual Open Day".
The email contains "details" about graduate admission and funding, as well as a fake invitation to a virtual open day. It also has several links that lead to outside sources having no connection to Oxford or any of its colleges.
To anyone who has also gotten this email--it is a phishing attempt. Do not click any of the links. They are disguised using html code that makes them say things like "graduate.ox.ac.uk" but they link to another website that I presume will be asking you to fill in data.
If you get this email, the best thing to do would be to flag it as spam and delete it without even opening it. I guarantee you will not be missing out on anything.
Just wanted to let everyone know. And if a mod thinks this belongs somewhere else, please move it as I don't want anyone to run into problems because of it.
Beware of Phishing! Play safe on the internet =)
Over the Easter break
