An email supposedly from the "Information Technology Service Centre" is supposedly telling you that your email account needs to be validated.  The link to "confirm your account HERE" attempts to steal your UBIT credentials.

Red flags: How you can tell it is a fake

Phishing email
 
  1. Hovering over URL shows it is not a buffalo.edu site.
