Example 177:A Message from the IDmanagement

Forged "help desk" email from outside umn.edu, Redirects to bogus UMN login page.
Received December 2016

Things to note:

  • Email comes from an outside user - claims to be from "Help Desk"
  • Link goes to a very close copy of our current login page
  • Filling in page redirects to http://twin-cities.umn.edu/ - even if nothing is entered.
