Spam, Phishing, and Suspicious Email
Spam, phishing, and other malicious email can cause real harm. Criminals can use them to gain access to your personal and financial information, as well as sensitive university information and access to U-M resources.
Malicious email typically uses urgent language; asks for passwords, bank account numbers, user names, credit card numbers, or other personal information; and may have grammatical, typographical, or other obvious errors.
Test Yourself and Take Action
I Think I Got Caught. Now What?
If you gave personal information in response to a phishing email or on a suspicious webpage, your account may be compromised.
