Mississippi College and other reputable organizations will never use email to request that you reply with your password, social security number or other confidential information. Be suspicious of any email message that asks you to enter or verify personal information, through a website or by replying to the message itself. Never reply to or click the links in a message. If you think the message may be legitimate, go directly to the company's website (e.g., type the real URL into your browser) or contact the company to see if you really do need to take the action described in the email message.

If you recognize a phishing message within the Google web client, choose to Report Phishing.
