Skillpages Warning

Please use extreme caution when using the site Skillpages.com.

IT has been made aware that many people on campus have received emails from this social networking site in the past week. The website is a legitimate social networking site, but it uses questionable email tactics in growing their membership. When you create an account on the site, one step of the process is granting the site access to your email address book. The site then accesses your address book and sends email to all the addresses without asking your permission.

Should you receive emails from this site, do not click the links and simply delete the message. IT also recommends that you not create an account on this website. If you have created an account, you can login and delete your account from the “settings” page.

If you have questions, please contact the IT Help Desk (webhelpdesk.valpo.edu, it.helpdesk@valpo.edu, 219.464.5678).
