The Center for Learning & Professional Development inadvertently sent an email to a larger group than intended; if you received it and didn't previously attend an informational session, please disregard it.
A classic phishing scam returns, signalling that the start of a new academic year can't be far away.
From time to time we receive questions about the authenticity of email solicitations from Academia.edu, such as the following request to approve a co-author tag.
This announcement from the US Army TEC Recruiter should be ignored or marked as spam, and if interested in military commissioning opportunities, you should instead contact Karen McNeil of the Office of Student Veteran

Two recent reports on a classic phishing subject: running out of mailbox space and the need to "re-validate" to continue receiving email.
Emails from HonorSociety.org, while not malicious, belong in your Spam folder, even though the site and its social media pages might look convincing.
