As a reminder, UW Oshkosh and Academic Computing don't want your passwords, or personal information ( Unless you call the help desk for password assistance). Spammers however do and they can do a lot of damage with this information, that is why they send e-mails like the one above. General rule of thumb is this; if you don't recognize the sender of the e-mail, don't respond and never ever give your personal information to anyone through e-mail. This includes the following:

Bank information

Social Security numbers

Birth Date
