A “spoofed” email  is the forgery of an email sender so that the message appears to be sent by someone familiar instead of a perpetrator. Email “spoofing” is used by phishing and spam perpetrators to trick someone into opening the message by thinking it is from someone familiar.  In these cases, the IT Service Desk advises those being spoofed to notify their common contacts that they are being “spoofed” and to take diligence when receiving emails from them with careful inspection. 
Contact the IT Service Desk if you are unsure about the security of their account.
