Important Massage – Scam (3/12/18)

The following is a scam that poses as a update from DropBox that someone has shared a new document for them to view. This scam would have the user download an attachment which emulates a login page. If the victim was to put their credentials into the emulated page the scammers then would have access to the victim’s account.

Some indicators that this is a scam is are the fact that the email address used is not from Dropbox,  the email is not addressed to the individual rather using a generic “user” greeting, and the obvious typo of “Important Massage”.

If you have received this email please delete it .
