COMMUNITY NEWS

Something's Phishy!!
Earlier this week many of you received a hoax email supposedly from Washington Mutual bank. The email was a perfect example of "phishing," a term that refers to con artists asking users for their bank account and other personal details. Please note that the message from "Washington Mutual" is not the first nor will it be the last of its type that you will receive. Please exercise extreme caution and don't hesitate to delete anything unexpectedly asking for your personal information. When in doubt, "delete first, ask questions later" is an important strategy to consider for today's Internet culture. To read more about spoofing, visit htp://software.silicon.com/security/0,39024655,39121691,00.htm or contact the Help Desk at (206)-281-2982 or help@spu.edu.


Prison Awareness Project
An invitation to attend the Prison Awareness Project Saturday workshop for those interested in learning more about prison culture and the corrections process from the offender perspective. "A View from the Inside" will take place February 26 from 8:00 a.m. - 3:20 p.m. at Washington State Reformatory in Monroe. This free event is presented by inmates of the Prison Awareness Project, a program originated by inmates in 1975 as a communications bridge to the community. You will hear first person accounts of the prisoner's experience in the criminal justice system. You will have opportunity to ask your questions, interact in a safe environment with felons, and come away with better insight to the issues and challenges in creating safer, healthier communities. RSVP by February 11 as there is an attendance limit of 25. Attendees must be over age 25 years of age. We also invite your volunteering in our program or one of many in the Monroe Correctional Complex of 4 facilities. To sign up contact: mvalberg@msn.com, or call Jo at (206) 920-1297.
