    The following form number is a fraudulent attempt to acquire username and passwords for gmu.edu email addresses.

    Thanks very much for drawing this to our attention, Alex. The form's creator clearly violated rules 1 and 3 of our TOS and as such, we have excercised our prerogative as set out in rule 6 in the said document.

    Phishing is a very serious matter and we certainly don't want our service associated with such activity.

    Thanks again.
