Phishing Tip #1

Don't Send Passwords Through Email

You might receive an urgent email from some random email address that is asking you to reply with your password or any other personal information because your account is "compromised

or  "suspended due to inactivity".  Do not believe these emails.  No one and no email from IT will ever ask you for your password.
