Beware of scam emails being sent to students with subjects such as Survey Assistant or Student Research Program.

Copy of email sent to all students on 7/12/22

Dear Members of our Student Community,

We are currently receiving reports of attacks that attempt to steal private information from students. The messages have subjects like “SURVEY ASSISTANT,” “STUDENT RESEARCH PROGRAM,” or other similar subjects, and use a gmail.com address that appears to come from someone at Rice. 

This message is a scam and should be deleted. 

For those that have already reported it, thank you. If you acted upon the message, please report it to the OIT Help Desk at 713-348-HELP or helpdesk@rice.edu.

Please remain vigilant and be skeptical of unusual emails. If you receive an email that you have questions about, please report it to the OIT Help Desk. Read more about how to recognize scams in our KnowledgeBase: https://kb.rice.edu/93449

Thank you,

Marc Scarborough
Chief Information Security Officer
