Scam email targeting UNCG Library Users

Librarians and campus ITS were notified that the following scam email was sent to a UNCG faculty member.

It's a very realistic message!  But if you click on the link that is provided, you're sent to a website with a .tk domain (instead of a UNCG site that ends in .edu).  Don't enter your UNCG user name and password there!

If you see a message like this, please report it to campus ITS.  336/256-TECH or http://its.uncg.edu/Help
