Payment scam (3/12/18)

The following scam attempts to trick an employee into a fraudulent wire transfer by pretending to be a high ranking official requesting such transfer, Notice the non-VCU email used and the request for wire transfer to an account in another state; both are tell tale signs of a scam. Individuals receiving these types of requests should always confirm the request with the requester in person or via a known phone number before processing. Please delete this message if you received it.
