The Following scam attempts to trick its victims into clicking on a malicious link, which will subsequently direct the victim to a site that looks similar to a VCU site, and attempt to steal the login credentials from the victim. Note the generic language, grammatical errors, and the non-VCU link provided, all of which are tell tale signs of a scam. If you received this scam, please delete it. For more information on email and phishing scams, please contact the VCU helpIT center at 828-2227 or helpIT@vcu.edu.
