Minot State warns students of scam email

MINOT, N.D. - Minot State University’s Financial Aid Office is warning students of a scam email making the rounds.

The email looks like it’s coming from the financial aid office for the “bank of America.” The subject line of the email is “PENDING DEPOSIT.”

According to the email, a credit is being posted to the recipient’s account and they are asked to click to accept.

If the user hovers over the ‘confirm deposit’ link, it’s not a Minot State email address, and students are urged not to click on it.
