Subject: Phishing Attempt Threat Advisory: 'EZSchoolPay Phishing Attempt'

Phishing is a fraudulent process used by spammers to acquire sensitive information from users such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details. Email recipients are often deceived by phishing attempts since messages appear to be sent by legitimate and trustworthy sources.

In recent hours, we have learned of a new phishing attack that attempts to draw the attention of recipients with the subject line “subj” [for example], while the sender may appear to be client@ezschoolonline.com [for example]. Users are directed to a fake website and asked to enter private information. In the event that you receive a message fitting this description, close the message immediately and report it as spam.  An image of the phishing email is included below for reference.  Remember that EZSchoolPay will never ask you for your password or other personal information in an email, and emails such as this are not from EZSchoolPay.

Please know that we take your privacy very important and that we never sell or provide your personal information to third parties.

Thank you,
