Don’t Get Caught: Phishing emails impersonating a Blackboard System Account

We’ve received a number of reports from users who have received phishing emails from an account claiming to be “Blackboard”. Some have had a notification of a Voicemail message attached.

If you do receive a message like this, please delete it immediately and do not click on any links.

We have reported these messages to the University’s spam filter so there shouldn’t be more of them coming into university inboxes.

What does a genuine email from Blackboard look like?

  • Blackboard Learn does not have a Voicemail function.
  • Any genuine emails from Blackboard will come from
    do-not-reply@blackboard.com
  • The Blackboard notification emails will have the Blackboard Logo
