Spam and Phishing Scams


Remember, CSUB will NEVER ask you for your password via email! 

IF IT LOOKS SUSPICIOUS, DELETE THE MESSAGE

If you do accidentally send your CSU, Bakersfield or MyCSUB User Name and Password via email, or enter them into a suspicious website, immediately change your password using the MyCSUB Password Reset tool or by calling the Help Desk at (661) 654-2307.

What is Phishing?

Phishing scams are attempts by hackers and cybercriminals to steal personal information or hijack computing resources for nefarious purposes.

The most common (and most successful) phishing scams are emails that appear to come from a legitimate source (for instance; CSU, Bakersfield Technology Help Desk, your bank, eBay, PayPal) which contain a link that directs you to  equally legitimate-looking web pages.
