Updating Student Forwarding Address
All students are required to formally update their forwarding address by logging on to cardinal station (cardinalstation.cua.edu) when checking out of the residence halls. It is important to update the forwarding address regardless if the information is the same. Cardinal Station will forward first-class mail for four weeks as a courtesy, but it is unable to forward mail for a longer period of time. Anything other than first-class mail will not be forwarded. Persons moving off campus for longer than four weeks should notify correspondents of their new address. Students experiencing problems regarding any mail services should contact Postal Services.

BOGUS DELIVERY MESSAGES E-MAILED TO POSTAL CUSTOMERS
Some postal customers are receiving bogus e-mails about a package delivery. Subject lines containing the text: “USPS Delivery Failure Notification.” The e-mails contain a link that, when opened, installs a malicious virus that can steal personal information from your PC.
The email scam is similar to a telemarketing scam uncovered by the Postal Inspection Service in which fraudsters masquerading as USPS employees were phoning residents and requesting birth dates and Social Security numbers as requirements for package delivery.
The Corporate Information Security Officer offers these tips on spotting bogus emails:
- The text contains poor gramar or spelling errors
- The text states immediate action must be taken or customer could face dire consequences.
- The email requests personal information under the guise of re-confirming information.
- The text from an "automated message system" states "Click on this link for details."
