    WAC Softball Tournament
     
    The Seattle University softball team welcomes the four other NCAA-eligible softball-playing members of the Western Athletic Conference to Logan Field for the 2014 WAC Softball Tournament. The tournament begins with four games Thursday, May 8, starting at 11 a.m. Seattle University is the third seed in the double-elimination tournament and will face second-seed Kansas City in its first game of the tournament Thursday at 1:30 p.m. The tournament continues with three more games Friday, May 9, starting at 1:30 p.m., and concludes with Championship Saturday, May 10, beginning at noon. Because this is a postseason competition, the tournament will be a ticketed event, and there will be NO complimentary tickets for faculty and staff. However, Seattle U Athletics has put together a special deal for faculty and staff, as employees of any WAC school, including Seattle U, can receive an all-session pass for just $10 or a single-day pass for only $5 with a valid ID. Each faculty/staff member and ONE guest is eligible for that special price. That’s $10 for at least eight, and potentially nine, softball games which will determine the team that will represent the conference in the NCAA Tournament. The all-session and single-day passes can be purchased at one of the marked entrances to Logan Field. For the latest information on the WAC Softball Tournament, visit GoSeattleU.

    Public Service Announcement: Cyber-Related Scams Targeting Universities, Employees and Students
     
    Seattle University Public Safety is sharing the following public service announcement from the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3).
     
    The IC3 is aware of multiple scams targeting universities, university employees and students across the nation. The scams range from Internet fraud to intrusions. The following are common scenarios:
     
    ·        Spear phishing e-mails are being sent to university employees that appear to be from their employer. The e-mail contains a link and claims some type of issue has risen requiring them to enter their log-in credentials. Once employees provide their user name and password, the perpetrator accesses the university’s computer system to redirect the employees’ payroll allocation to another bank account. The university employees’ payroll allocations are being deposited into students’ accounts. These students were hired through online advertisements for work-at-home jobs, and provided their bank account information to the perpetrators to receive payment for the work they performed.
     
    ·        Scammers are posting online advertisements soliciting college students for administrative positions in which they would receive checks via the mail or e-mail. Students are directed to deposit the checks into their accounts, and then print checks and/or wire money to an individual. Students are never asked to provide their bank account information to the perpetrators.
     
    ·        Perpetrators are compromising students’ credential resulting in the rerouting of their reimbursement money to other bank accounts. The reimbursement money is from student loans and used to pay tuition, books, and living expenses.
     
    ·        Perpetrators are obtaining professors’ personally identifiable information (PII) and using it to file fraudulent income tax returns.
     
    ·        Some universities have been victims of intrusions, resulting in the perpetrators being able to access university databases containing information on their employees and students.
     
    If you have been a victim of one of these scams or any other Internet related scam, we encourage you to file a complaint with the IC3 at www.ic3.gov and notify your university police.
    Contact Craig Birklid in Public Safety at cbirklid@seattleu.edu with questions.
