Malicious email alert

It’s been quiet since the USAA scam emails have died down, but don’t let your guard down yet! There’s a new phishing scam making its rounds.

Like a horoscope, this one is just vague enough to seem to apply to everyone. Note also the inclusion of “uw” in sender address and link- again, what we see is that “uw” is not in the right place in the address for it to be an actual UW domain website.
