How do you know this is a Phishing Scam: 

This phishing email is very vague and that makes it easier to identify as a scam. The message is not addressed to anyone in particular and does not reference UChicago anywhere, but uses words like "suspicious" and "security measures" to make you react without thinking. Threats are commonly used as part of phishing scams to get you clicking first and asking questions later. Do not fall for these tactics!
