The pdf that was attached in the following email was scanned, and while not malicious, it did contain a note purporting to be from the University asking to click a Google Docs link. The link itself is not malicious either but it directs people to a form asking for login credentials, which has malicious intent.  Fordham will NEVER ask you to provide confidential information via email.
