ATTENTION JUNIORS AND SENIORS: There is a scam that is targeting Jr and Sr students. The scammer sends students emails that look like they’re coming from the SEA (such as ADE) or USDOE in which the scammer instructs students to set up a profile so that the SEA and/or USDOE can search for available scholarships. Because students apparently often use the same password for everything they do, the scammers are looking for passwords.
