Have you received email with a subject of "ATT" or "ATTT" or "DO AS INSTRUCTED"?    Please do not click on the link; simply delete the message.  It is a phishing scam. 

This message, like any other email that asks you to to enter your UVM password on a non-UVM web site, is a phishing scam. Do  not click links in such messages and do not reply.  

UVM will never ask you to enter your UVM Net-ID password on a non-UVM web page -- even if it looks like a UVM page, and even if it's on a reputable site, such as Google Docs. 

What to do if you've clicked on the link

If you've followed the link in the message, or replied to this email or one like it, you should change your password immediately at www.uvm.edu/account. Contact the UVM Computing Helpline if you need assistance changing your password.

For more information about phishing scams, view our Web page on protecting your NetID and password

If you are ever uncertain about the legitimacy of an email message concerning your uvm.edu account, please contact the Computing Help Line at 656-2604, or submit a help request online.
