[Micronet] [Announce] Tax Scam Announcement

Christopher Doane
Due to an increase in reported incidents from the Internal Revenue
Service, ISP (Information Security & Policy) has posted a warning
concerning tax scams on the UCB Security website:

https://security.berkeley.edu/news/warning-beware-tax-scams

The IRS noted an especially high increase in phone scams, but this
coincides with a surge of email "phishing" tax scams seen on campus
recently.

Please share the information in this announcement with the other members
of your teams.  Contact ISP with any questions or concerns at
[hidden email].
