Fund transfer scam (8/23/17)

The following sam attempts to trick an employee into responding to the scammer to setup a fund transfer. Notice the scammer pretends to be a high ranking University official but is sending the email from an unknown email address. This is a tell tale sign of an initial hook in these types of scams. If you receive suspicious messages like this, then it is always good to verify with the actual person over the phone before proceeding.
