Beware of Email Scam

Scammers are always seeking ways to gain your trust, and your credentials. The latest attempt in your InBox late last week looks like it is coming from UW-Madison, complete with logo. Ironically it states that due to a flood of scam email to “ servers,” you are directed to click on a link to update your account. New, seemingly more creative attempts arrive each week. Do not fall for them. To report an apparent spam or scam, forward it to so the UW Office of Cybersecurity can investigate and take appropriate action.
