Over the Fourth of July weekend, phishing emails were sent to a number of staff, students, and faculty. The phishing emails had subjects: “School Mail Box Validation” “IDENTITY PROTECTION,” “IDENTITY RE-VALIDATE,” and “Easy Fast And Reliable.” They contained links to two login forms: one to validate your email address and one to validate IRS tax information.

If you filled out either form or suspect you are a victim of identity theft, visit to learn about immediate action steps.

To see an example of the fraudulant IRS form, it is posted on “Examples of Phishing Targeting” on the U blog at
