Email Security

Ensuring that IRESE is private and safe is our highest priority. Some fraudsters and identity thieves send emails that look like they are from a company you know and trust, asking for personal information. These are known as "spoof" emails.

To help you determine the difference between email sent by IRESE and spoof email, IRESE includes some of your account information in each of the emails that we send to you. This information includes the first and last name you registered on your IRESE account, along with your IRESE screen name.

Why does IRESE include my name and screen name in email?

Since people who send spoof email often don't have your first and last name as well as your IRESE screen name, receiving an email that contains this information should increase your confidence that the email was sent by IRESE.

There may still be cases where spoof emails could contain your first and last name as well as your IRESE screen name, so seeing this information isn't a foolproof indicator that IRESE sent an email.
