Password Reset, Scam (4-17-2018)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating a password reset that the user did not request. The scam will bring the victim to a page to reset their password which will be used to steal the user’s credentials. You can tell this is a scam because the reset was not requested. Do not reset your password if you have not requested the service to reset your password! Also the URL behind the link is completely different.

If you have received this email you can safely delete and ignore it.
