Fayette schools alert parents of Infinite Campus scam

The Fayette County School System’s technology department on April 22 sent a notice to parents cautioning them to avoid providing information to anyone claiming to work for the Infinite Campus notification system.

“Some districts have reported that staff or parents have received emails from people purporting to work for Infinite Campus, requesting usernames, passwords and email accounts to confirm ownership of their Infinite Campus account,” the notice said.

Department director Curt Cearley said that while Fayette County has not received any reports of this to date, the advisory was sent as a cautionary measure to the schools and family members who use the notification system.

Users should not respond to the email, nor click on any link that may be included in the email. It is common that these types of scammers may attempt to use malicious sites to infect the recipient's computer with malware, Cearley said, adding that Infinite Campus would never request this information from users via email.

Cearley asked that parents notify their child's school if they suspect they have received a phishing email posing as Infinite Campus.

The notice is also posted on the Infinite Campus portal.
