As technology becomes smarter, nefarious people continue to get smarter with their attempts to scam us and steal personal information. If you suspect that an email is not legitimate or seems a bit off, trust your instincts and report it to the security team. Reporting these emails is the best way to protect yourself and other Salukis!
