Cybercrime, E-mail scam, Scam alert
I sent this out to my entire staff at the school the other day after a staff member alerted me:
There is an email floating around that warns you to “Validate” an email account. The email is a phishing scam that attempts to get you to visit a form and input your email details including your password. If you receive an email similar to the one below, delete it immediately!
