If anyone solicits you for any of your passwords via email, it is safe to assume that this is a scam because we will never ask for your passwords. When you receive a phishing email asking for any of your passwords, please inform the Help Desk and the people around you that it is a scam. Please do not respond to the sender of any of these solicitations. A good way to tell if an emails a phishing scam if it is sent from an outside email address or is asking you to send a response to an outside email address. Often, phishing scams will claim to be from "IT" or "Help Desk", but if you take a closer look at the from field in the email, you can see that the email does not come from a revereschools.org email domain.
