I have to admit, my initial reaction was to open the reply button. But I noticed that the reply to address was a Yahoo! account. I checked the UP Webmail site and there was a notice of a scam email or a social engineering hacking attempt.
UP has been in the news lately because it turns 100 years old this year. Perhaps some hacker might want to exploit this. In any case, UP students, faculty and alumni, do not reply to the above email if you got it.
