How to spot a phishing email

Here is an example of a typical phishing email. 

Sample phishing email

It appears to come from "McGill University", but isn't really from McGill.  It contains a link that appears to go to a McGill site, but if you roll over the link, it's not.  There are run-on sentences. See other example emails showing the telltale signs of phishing.

When in doubt, report suspicious emails to the IT Service Desk.
