The information below was sent via email to the IT Security Community and Frontline Notify groups on March 25, 2016.
Higher education, including U-M, is under siege from an onslaught of phishing and tax fraud attempts. Since January, we have seen a huge upswing in well-crafted phishing emails. In addition, with the tax season upon us, we once again are seeing a rise in the number of U-M community members falling victim to tax fraud.
Please help us continue to inform people at U-M about these threats and what they can do to protect themselves.
