This Halloween, don’t get scared by phishing emails using trickery to try to get your information. Simply ignore and delete these messages. If you’re unsure, forward the message as an attachment to security@uchicago.edu.

One example of this is an email scam that has been making its way into University community inboxes since July. The email claims to have your password and threatens to reveal personal information if you don’t comply. Although this message may seem targeted, it doesn’t pose a real threat.
