Email storage warning (8/28/17)

The following scam attempts to trick its victims into clicking on a link, which will subsequently attempt to steal login information from the victim. Notice the non-VCU / non-VCUHS sender’s email, the generic message, and the hidden link going to a third party website; all of these are signs of a scam. Please delete if you received this message.
