Phishing Message Summary

This phish comes from a forged umich address and may say "umich.edu" in the from field. It might also contain an email attachment that redirects to a phishing site, shown in the screen capture below. The phishing site will appear personalized to the recipient, requests login credentials, cycle through a "progress page," and ultimately redirects back to umich.edu. Tips that this is a phish include the URL that isn't a umich.edu page, grammar and capitalization errors, and vague request to take action quickly to prevent loss of email.
