Fraudulent E-mails
Po-Ming Wong, CUA director of treasury services, reports that over the course of the past week, CUA employees have been receiving e-mails allegedly from U.S. Bank and Citibank asking individuals to confirm specific data and being told that failure to comply will lead to access denial. CUA does not have a banking relationship with U.S. Bank, but does have one with Citibank. The Office of Treasury Services has contacted both U.S. Bank and Citibank to verify the validity of the e-mails. They have confirmed that these e-mails are fraudulent and did not come from them.
To avoid potential viruses and future spam, CUA community members are advised to delete the e-mails as soon they arrive. The subject of the e-mails sent to the university from U.S. Bank is titled "U.S. Bank Billing Department: Important Information." For more information regarding Internet spoofs, please go to ex.htm and click on "Consumer Alert."

Parking Permits
Faculty and staff may now purchase their parking permits.

Employees are encouraged to use payroll deduction for their vehicle registration. Part-time salaried employees, who will be employed for a full academic semester, may be eligible for payroll deduction. Employees choosing not to utilize payroll deduction or who are not eligible to participate may pay for their permits via cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover).

Faculty and staff wishing to purchase parking permits must appear in person at the Campus Transportation Management Office (Leahy Hall, Room 121) and present a valid CUA identification card (Cardinal Card).

Vehicle registrants will be issued one permit (hangtag). Registrants who operate alternate vehicles must transfer the permit between vehicles. Faculty permits are provided to full-time members of the faculty, as determined by the Office of the Provost.
