Auburn University's CIO sends out a warning to students, faculty, and staff about phishing, and includes an example of phishing in his email. A few days later, he sends out another email, excerpt below:

"In my previous alert, I included the text of a phishing email as an example. Some students misunderstood that I was asking for user name and password, and replied with that information. Please be aware that you shouldn’t provide this information to anyone."
