Note to students and families - Scam alert
Posted on 06/09/2022
scam alertWe have received a report of a student/family in northern New York (St. Lawrence County) receiving a piece of physical postal mail that claimed there was a cyber incident involving the student’s personal information.

This was a scam. The letter appeared to be legitimate and advised the reader to enroll in free identity protection services. However, rather than connecting to a legitimate enrollment site, the personal information was redirected to the scammers’ website, which then proceeded to download unwanted software to the family’s home computer.

There have been no such reports in our region, but we advise parents and students to be on the lookout for bad actors attempting to access personal information. If you have any doubt or questions regarding a piece of mail or some other solicitation, contact your school administrators immediately.
