Email Phishing Attempts

Sophisticated email phishing attempts are being conducted in an effort to compromise University accounts.  These emails may contain content such as a request to reactivate your account, an unexpected invoice for a service, or a notice of a false court hearing.  Please use caution when opening any email attachments or clicking any links within suspicious emails.

Information Technology Services (ITS) will never ask you for your username and password via email or over the phone.

If you receive an email message that has a suspicious link or attachment, or asks you for account details such as your username and password, you can report the message to ITS staff via email at or over the phone by calling the ITS Service Desk at (901) 678-8888.  If you mistakenly opened an attachment or provided your account details via email or to a non-UofM website, please contact the ITS Service Desk for further assistance.
