Spam Email --"Dear Account User"

Dear staff, if you have received the email below,simply delete it. This email is meant to phish for your Mak-email login details and is not from DICTS. You should always pay attention to the source of the communication/email which in this case is "
(clearly not from Makerere University!!) . Any security conscious organisation will never request for your login details in this format.
If you do online banking and you receive an email requesting for your account number and PIN for purposes of verification etc,simply delete as this won't be from your bank,it will be someone impersonating your bank!.The same applies to many phishing scams online including the email below.
