STUDENT TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT, Scam (5-24-18)

The following is a job offer scam. This one follows the same format as before with a body that says view the message attached. The attachment has an offer for a job, it does require that the victim email the scammer back at an alternative address.

To spot a scam like this, think is it too good to be true? Do you know the person offering the job? No one will offer a job without an interview. The various grammar issues are dead giveaways that this is a scam. Notice that none of the emails that the scammer is using are business emails. All of these are signs of a scam.

If you have received this email please delete it.

Dear
Am Dr Morgan and I work as a clinical counselor for the department of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES). I provide individual and group therapy, coaching, assessment and academic screenings to support students with disabilities (physical, chronic, psychiatric, and invisible)registered with DRES. A large percentage of the students served by the mental health unit have psychiatric disabilities or co-morbid psychiatric disabilities and need mental health support to be successful at the university. In addition, many University of students with academic difficulties and no prior diagnosis are seen and assessed through the academic screening and assessment process. I also am the director of supervision, training and coordination of counseling psychology and clinical psychology graduate students of the United States who have practicums at DRES and APA-accredited school psychology pre-doctoral interns.
You have received this email because you have an offer from the University Office for Students with Disabilities to work with me while we help with disabilities frustrated with ignorance and lack of services but as my temporary personal assistant.
I care about Animal Welfare, Arts and Culture, Children, Civil Rights and Social Action, Education, Environment, Disaster and Humanitarian Relief, Social Services and lots more.
This is a very simple employment. You will only help me Make payments at Walmart and purchase some Items when needed. This employment only takes an hour a day and 3 times a week or 4 for $620 .00 weekly.I am unable to meetup for an interview because I am currently away and helping the disabled students in Australia.
You will be paid in advance for all tasks and purchased to be done on my behalf and some of my personal letters and mails will be forwarded to your residence or nearby post office for you to pick up at your convenience. Upon my arrival we will discuss the possibility of making this a long-term employment if I am impressed with your services while I am away.

Please email your Full name, Residential Address to receive packages, Alternate email (different from school email) and Cell # ;- Dr Morgan (lukeshaw551@gmail.com)

Vacancy Announcement – Scam (5-24-18)

The following is a job offer scam. This one follows the same format as before with a body that is empty. The attachment has an offer for a job, the victim will just need to reach out to the scammer with alternative contact information.

To spot a scam like this, think is it too good to be true? Do you know the person offering the job? No one will offer a job without an interview. Notice that the email that the scammer is using is not a business email. The poor spelling and grammar also points to a scam email. All of these are signs of a scam.

IDD:133 Re: Completed new files in your drive , Scam (5-14-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating a service account (Dropbox) which has an attachment document which the user needs to check. The document is loaded with malware, which once opened will infect the user’s machine and steal their personal data.

Some signs that this is a scam are the non- service account email and just a solo attachment with very little email body. If you have received this email please delete it.

nEW Po received from 18176124543, scam (5-14-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating a system email. The email states that the user has a document waiting for them sent via one-drive. The document is attached to the email. The document is loaded with malware which will be used to steal PII (Credit cards, social security number and passwords) Some signs that this is a scam are the email address is not an official Microsoft account. The grammar in the email is off (you to you, nEW). Also the fact that there is just an attachment with little text is suspicious.

If you have received this email please delete it.

CHANGES, scam (5-14-18)

The following is scam in which the scammer is impersonating a service account for O365 and has an issue that requires the user’s attention to resolve. In this particular scam the issue is a service swap in which the user needs to sign into their account to delay a service swap. The link is a phishing link, once clicked it will show a cloned login page. If the user was to put in their credentials the scammer would have their user information.

Some signs that this is a scam are the urgent issues that require the user’s attention. The email address is not a service account (the username for the account is a service name but the actually email account is a not). The generic signature (Service provider) is another sign of a scam email. The email link, if hovered over, leads to a different site that is not a VCU operated site.

If you have received this email please delete it.

VCU RAMS, Scam (5-10-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer poses as an advertisement for VCU FAN HOUSE. The ad says that you can sign onto the web page and start accumulating points. The ad claims to represent VCU Department of Athletics.

There is no VCU FAN HOUSE and if there was there would be a post on VCU’s athletics page. Some signs that this is a scam are there are no official VCU statement about VCU FAN HOUSE, the email is sent from a non VCU address, and if you hover over the link you will see that the link leads to another site (non-VCU).

If you have received this email please delete it.
