Question Scam (5/31/17)

Emails similar to the one below commonly come across the wire here at VCU. Typically, they are a targeted attack that focuses on researchers or high level educators. This particular email was sent unsolicited and had the attachment (removed). Often, when an attachment is included, it can be previewed through most mail apps. However, there are times when malicious scripts are embedded into the attachment, and they will launch upon download and opening the files.
Please delete and do not respond to these types of emails. If you do not have a working relationship with the sender, they should not be sending you unsolicited emails with their “work.”

Hello. I have an article on philosophy. I’ve already posted it (and get a
code DOI) in German. Now I want to “mark” the position expressed in the
article in English (in Scopus). Subject to my mind a very hot. I’m looking
collaborator for a new (based on current) article. Can you give me some
contact potential partners, which I could show my article?
