Are you ready for the biggest online shopping weekend of the holiday season? The bad guys certainly are. So while you’re looking for the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, make sure you’re also on the lookout for holiday shopping scams.

Be aware of the following scams and safety tips to protect yourself this holiday season:

  • Never click on links in emails. There are thousands of fake sites that look almost identical to the real thing. If you want to shop a website that you frequent, always navigate to the site by typing the web address in your browser rather than clicking on a link in an email.
  • Don’t open attachments with special offers. This is a classic scam. If the email presents a valid offer, you shouldn’t have to open an attachment or click on a link.
  • Watch for malicious ads and pop-ups. Do not click on ads that sound too good to be true, and ignore pop-ups that make “best deal ever” claims.
  • Beware of e-skimmers. This is a new scam to watch out for. Have you heard of criminals skimming your credit card information from gas stations or ATMs? Well, now fraudsters are skimming credit card data during online checkouts. Use trusted sources such as PayPal or Amazon to avoid this type of data loss.
  • Whenever possible, use a credit card for online shopping. Never use your debit card to make purchases online. If you encounter fraudulent charges on your debit card, it’s not always possible to get a refund. Whereas, most credit card issuers offer greater protection against fraudulent charges.
  • Do not shop over public Wi-Fi. Never send sensitive data over free or public wi-fi networks. You can’t be sure if the network is secure, or if others are spying on your online session. If you must use public wi-fi, be sure to use a VPN connection which encrypts your information.
  • Be very cautious of “free offers” during the holidays. During this time of the year, there’s a huge spike in all types of survey fraud and gift card scams.
  • Do not reuse any of your passwords. Not just during the holidays; practice this tip all year long. Reusing any of your passwords is an invitation to get hacked. Instead, use a password manager to create hard-to-break passwords.
  • Keep a close eye on your credit card and bank accounts. During the holiday season and all year long–monitor your credit card and bank statements. Unexpected charges are typically the first sign that your card, or even your whole identity has been stolen. If you think you’ve been scammed, stay calm and call your credit card company.
  • Be especially suspicious of gift card scams. They can be a perfect holiday gift, but gift card scams are skyrocketing. Only buy gift cards from trusted sources.

Remember, Think Before You Click.

If you have questions or comments, contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu.

Florida, like other parts of the United States, is experiencing a serious hepatitis A virus (HAV) outbreak. Since 2018, there have been more than 22,000 cases of HAV in the United States. In Florida, there have been more than 3,500 cases since 2018 and more than 2,900 cases since January 2019. In response, Florida’s State Surgeon General declared a Public Health Emergency.

Hepatitis A vaccination is your best protection against the virus. Most vaccinations come in two doses, given six months apart.  Two doses separated by six months are recommended; however, one dose is 93 percent effective. Information about HAV from the CDC is available here. Information specific to the Department of Health’s response and vaccination sites can be found here.  The Department of Health recommends vaccination if you:

  • Are homeless or your housing is unstable.
  • Use illicit recreational drugs—injected or not.
  • Want protection (immunity) from the virus.
  • Have adopted or care for a child who comes from a country where hepatitis A is common.
  • Are 60 or older and have a serious underlying medical condition.
  • Have chronic or long-term liver disease, including hepatitis B or C.
  • Have a clotting-factor disorder.
  • Have come into direct contact with others who have the virus.
  • Are a man who has sex with other men.
  • Have traveled to or will travel to countries where the virus is common—visit the CDC’s Traveler’s Health.

http://www.floridahealth.gov/diseases-and-conditions/vaccine-preventable-disease/hepatitis-a/index.html

Talk to us at Stetson Health Service — ask if hepatitis A vaccine is a good option for you: 386-822-8150.

Bad guys are already stealing brand new Disney+ accounts. In fact, thousands of them are already for sale on criminal sites. They are gaining access to accounts by trying to get into accounts using known, hacked usernames and passwords. The information they are using to effectively “hold these accounts hostage” is information that the bad guys already have access to.

Follow these tips to keep your new Disney+ Account and other online applications safe:

  • Do not reuse passwords. If you use the same password for different accounts and one gets hacked, they all are.
  • Never use variations of current or old passwords. If a breached password doesn’t work, the bad guys know that variations might work.

Questions or comments, please contact I.T. at support@stetson.edu.

Come meet the Stetson Public Safety staff as they table in front of the CUB on Thursday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to noon.

During the One Hour with Public Safety, the staff will be available to talk to students, faculty and staff who have questions or concerns. Students also can register their bikes for free. This service allows Public Safety to store students’ contact information along with the make, model, color and serial number of their bike in case it is lost or stolen.

Stop by our table Thursday in the courtyard outside of the CUB. For more information, please call Public Safety at 386-822-7300.

After 35 years of service to Stetson University, Jim Mallett, PhD, professor of finance, is retiring.

Please join us on Friday, Nov. 22, 2-4:30 p.m., for cake and light refreshments in honor of Jim.

As previously announced, Stetson’s Information Technology department is implementing Microsoft OneDrive, which will replace our current “G: drive” for personal storage.

You have three weeks until access to your G: drive will be discontinued on Dec. 7, 2019.

Files in your G: drive will not automatically transfer to OneDrive. So, we need you to move the files you would like to keep to your OneDrive as soon as you can.

If you or your department would like training, please send us an email to support@stetson.edu.

Additional training materials for your reference can be found at these locations:

I.T. appreciates your patience and cooperation throughout this project, and we sincerely hope you enjoy the new features and functionality of OneDrive.

Please let us know if you have any questions by contacting the helpdesk at support@stetson.edu or 386-822-7217.

Deliberating About Things That Matter: “Redeeming Male Hazing” — an informal lecture given by alumnus Jay Mechling, PhD — will be hosted by Phi Beta Kappa on Thursday, Nov. 21 at the Rinker Environmental Learning Center (adjacent to Gillespie Museum), 4:30-6 p.m.

Dr. Mechling has taught at the University of California – Davis for 40 years on various topics of American studies. His current research is focused on “hazing and American culture.” He will discuss the social institution of hazing, its place in American culture, and the process of researching and writing.

Stetson Dining Services utilized survey results from the 2018 Voice to Vision annual survey — and found that it was time for a change on campus.

BYOB – or Build Your Own Bowl – will be coming to campus in January.  This will be a Moe’s/Chipotle-style restaurant that will be around $7-$9 for a complete customizable meal.

In order to have this renovation complete by the time students return for the Spring semester, the last day of service at Johnny Rockets will be Nov. 26. During the remaining weeks of the Fall semester, Einsteins Bros Bagels will extend its hours to accommodate the late-night option.

Follow the journey on Instagram @stetsondining for more details.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Taylor Mills at temills@stetson.edu.
