CIS Professor Cindy Casey featured on PBS

Program Coordinator and Instructor for GMercyU's Computer Information Science program Cindy Casey was recently featured on PBS39 to offer insight on a current Covid coupon scam.

"A phishing scam is just like fishing. They throw a line out and see how many fish are going to bite. You click on the link and answer some questions in the survey. But, you end up giving away your personal information, things like your name and address, for starters. Scammers can use that information to impersonate you or most likely, they'll turn around and sell your personal information on the dark web," Casey told PBS39.
