  • Thanks for spreading the word about phishing attacks! In general, any email you receive that requests personal user information via email is likely to be some form of fraud. Always be vigilant when receiving emails from any company with which you do business. Treat requests for personal information with suspicion. Be wary of any email that asks you to click on a link to update your personal information.

    If you do receive an email from Cox that asks for personal information, please send it to AS AN ATTACHMENT. Use the links below to learn more about spam, phishing, and how to send these types of email as attachments.
