University of Michigan has reported several instances of compromised U-M email accounts over the summer months. Malicious emails were sent to some students and alumni with U-M email addresses asking for personal information, including Social Security numbers, via Google Forms.
These are not official emails from U-M or another official source. If you receive these emails, do not click on any links contained in them.
If you suspect you have been on the receiving end of a scam email and you have provided personal information, the University recommends that you change your UMICH password immediately and contact the ITS Service Center to report the compromised email account. An ITS Service Representative will check your account for malicious activity.
