Report scam phone calls to C&IT
C&IT is investigating scam phone calls that appear to come from Wayne State phone numbers (e.g. 313-577-0000) and include pre-recorded messages claiming to be the IRS, notifications about extended warranties, and other types of solicitation. This tactic is called spoofing and occurs when a scammer uses a familiar phone number and creates a false sense of urgency to get personal information or money.
Please report spam calls
If you receive a fraudulent call like this, please report it to C&IT using the Report Spam Calls form on tech.wayne.edu/forms/telephone so that we may block the number. We are working with our vendors to find a long term solution, and blocking these numbers as we identify them allows us to protect university systems and information.
