Scam Email Alert Issued By Dutchess Community College

Dutchess County Community College is warning area residents of an email scam involving the school.

Judi Stokes, a spokeswoman for Dutchess Community College, said that the community should ignore the spam email, which falsely appears to be sent from the school’s registrar’s office.

“The College has been made aware that a spam email from Judi Stokes/Registrar is circulating, requesting payment for an invoice,” the school posted on social media on Thursday, July 11. “Please disregard and delete the email.”

The emails came from an outside third-party, and no personal information was shared. New measures have been put in place to avoid a similar incident in the future.

It is unclear how many emails were sent and to whom they were sent. The college noted that bills don’t get sent from the registrar’s office, they come from the Office of Financial Services directly to the myDCC portal. Invoices will never arrive as a .pdf.
