Potential Scam Alert: "HP Verification Services"

Update: The individual may also say he is calling from "Verification Report"


An individual has been calling a significant number of individuals at CalArts asking for HP printer information. When questioned about the purpose of his call, or when transferred to the IT department, he promptly hangs up. This is a social engineering tactic designed to trick CalArtians into providing information that he can either use or sell to another company.

If you receive a phone call from an individual claiming to be from "HP Verification Services" please immediately forward the call to the IT department, extension 7887.
