Visit this Information Security Page on how to identify phishing scam.

The UTRGV Information Security Office (ISO) and Information Technology (IT) have worked together to launch the Phishing Alert Button (PAB). The PAB gives you a safe way to forward potentially malicious emails to information security personnel for their review. This feature will also automatically remove the suspicious email from your inbox to prevent future exposure.

The Phishing Alert Button is available from Outlook for Office 365, Outlook 2016  for Windows and Mac.
