Phishing: You Received Files via WeTransfer



Why this looks valid

  • This email appears to come from WeTransfer
  • The email presents itself as a standard WeTransfer download, a common platform for large file transfers

Why this is phishing

  • The download link goes to a website which is not WeTransfer
  • The website asks for the user's email address and password, but Marist College does not have an enterprise WeTransfer account that uses centralized login or credentials

Additional notes

  • This is an extremely dangerous phishing attempt. If you clicked on this link and filled in your credentials, please contact the Help Desk immediately at x4357 (HELP) or
  • Remember:  our core services including Office365, MyMarist, iLearn, and many others are only available through the Marist College single-sign-on platform.  If you see a login screen that does not look like ours, don’t put in your credentials!
  • Report it as phishing to Microsoft. In the Outlook web interface, click the Junk drop-down menu, and click Phishing.  Every user who reports a malicious message helps Microsoft to recognize these types of messages in the future.
  • A little paranoia goes a long way! Be suspicious of any email messages similar to this one.
