Good morning.  

If the phishing scam below had arrived yesterday, I guess it would qualify as a poor April Fools' Day prank.  I know that at least a few UVM people received it over the weekend, so if anyone asks you about it, feel free to refer to a news article published this morning:

Most importantly, if anyone has followed the link, it's essential to change his or her Net-ID password immediately.  That can be done at:

Don't become a phishing victim!  UVM and other reputable organizations will never use email to request that you reply with your password, Social Security Number, date of birth or confidential personal information.  Never reply to an email with your password, SSN, date of birth, or any other confidential personal information.  Never enter your UVM Net-ID password on a non-UVM web page.
