Florida State University is warning its employees to be aware of a scam targeting other universities across the country called the University Payroll E-mail Scam.

“And, in the case that we’ve seen recently, people have attempted to use e-mails that purport to be from the institutions, saying that you’ve received a raise and to confirm the raise, you need to login to the payroll system to confirm the raise,” said Brian Rue, FSU’s Associate Director of Information Security.
