Beware Fishing Scam

The subject line is “FAFSA GRANT APPROVED !!!”

The email is made to look like it's regarding a FAFSA Grant. It informs the recipient that he or she is approved for a grant and should click on the link provided to complete an application. It appears to have been sent from a ufl.edu email account. 

DO NOT click on any links in the emails or provide any personal information in response to the emails. These links generally mimic legitimate sites and are used for identity theft/fraud.
