We have received reports of bogus and fraudulent emails sent from outside TCC purporting to be from TCC personnel.  Some emails are made to look like legitimate TCC senders and request “important tasks”.

Watch out for these scams!

Things to remember:

  1. If you don’t recognize the sender of the email, don’t trust any attachments or hyperlinks.  Send the email to your junk folder.
  2. Normally, banks or other finance-related institutions won’t ask you to verify information through email.
  3. If you receive an email that you suspect is not legitimate, please contact the TCC IT Help Desk at 253.460.HELP (4357) or
  4. If you do click the link, or enter any information, please notify the TCC IT Help Desk immediately so we can assist you.
