Increased volume of "spoofed" email addresses
Posted by Dylan Ledbetter on October 2, 2018

We are seeing an increased volume of email messages from external senders (outside of WMU) that are impersonating members of our WMU community. These messages are designed to deceive you in to thinking you are corresponding with a colleague, supervisor, or a high-ranking person of authority at the university. Be cautious if you receive messages of this nature, and be sure to check the email address to ensure it is from a WMU sender. Any suspicious activity can be forwarded as an attachment to abuse@wmich.edu for review. Questions should be directed to the Technology Help Desk at (269) 387-4357, option 1.
