“Message From Administrator” Email Scam (4/29/12)

Below is a message that has been received by some in the VCU community. This is an attempt to trick the recipient to click on a link that will either take someone to a site that will download malware software to their computer or attempt to gather their personal information. This message is fake and and should be deleted. Please contact the VCU helpIT Center (828-2227, helpIT@vcu.edu) with any questions.
