The University of Alabama is warning students that they may have received a phishing email.
It said in an announcement here that more than 2,630 students received a phishing email with the subject title “UA COVID-19 INFORMATION.”
“This email is a scam, it did not originate from The University of Alabama, nor does it include COVID-19 information,” the university said.
It went on to say that the scam tried to attract students to provide information for a fake job opportunity. You can find a screenshot of the email above.
