Towson students recieve spam email
Some Towson students received an email claiming to be from “Townson University” that asked them to “validate [their] account” Tuesday at 4:08 p.m.
The email came from the account email@example.com. The account belongs to Michael Bailey, assistant director of dining services.
Bailey said that he did not send the email, but that his account was taken over when he followed a link.
“[The link] was something similar to what [students received], it was asking me to validate my account,” he said.
Bailey said that he did not intentionally follow the link in the email, and that it happened because he was multitasking at the time.
Some students responded to the email, and received a response in turn. Bailey said that none of the emails related to the incident came from him.
“I didn’t respond back to anyone,” he said.
The Towerlight is waiting to hear back from the Office of Technology Services for comment on the issue.
Towson student Bridget Carrig said it wasn’t the first time she had received an email like that to her student email.
“I’ve been receiving them for the past few weeks now and just delete them,” Carrig said in an email.
