The following scam attempts to trick its victims into clicking on a malicious link, which will subsequently attempt to steal the victim’s login credentials. Notice the non-VCU sender’s address, and the non-VCU link, both of which are tell-tale signs of a phishing scam. Please keep in mind that before clicking on a link, you should hover your mouse over a link to see its true destination. If you have received this or other similar emails, please ignore and delete them. For more information on phishing and email scams, please contact the VCU helpIT center at 828-2227 or helpIT@vcu.edu.
