IRS issues alert about phishing scam that is targeting schools
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued an alert that a Form W-2 email phishing scam is now targeting schools. During the coming weeks, students, faculty and staff members can expect to receive a series of communications from the Office of Human Resources, CCIT and the Payroll Office.
Clemson University strongly recommends that students, faculty and staff members take caution when opening emails from unknown sources and clicking on links within emails.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen identified the scam as “one of the most dangerous email phishing scams we’ve seen in a long time,” and that the cyber-attack “can result in the large-scale theft of sensitive data that criminals can use to commit various crimes, including filing fraudulent tax returns.”

March Against Silence to be held this week
There will be a March Against Silence this Thursday, Feb. 16 starting at 4 p.m. The march will begin on library bridge and head toward Sikes, where there will be several speakers from the university community.
The march comes after the week-long Fast Against Silence, in which three Clemson professors, Drs. Todd May, Chenjerai Kumanyika and Michael Sears, sat in protest on the stairs of Sikes Hall “to call attention to Clemson administration’s silence, its failure to issue a public statement criticizing President Trump’s Muslim ban,” as stated by May in an email to The Tiger.
