New-Message, Scam (3-30-2018)

The following is scam in which the scammer is pretending that they have a document for the victim to view. The scammer attempts to exploit the victim’s trust in a third party application, in this case, DocuSign. The scammer is hoping that the victim will trust that the link leads to Docusign and will click.

Upon hovering over the link the victim can see that the link does not direct to DocuSign but rather another URL. If you are not expecting a document from the sender then do not click the link. Chances are high that it is a scam.

If you have recieved this email please delete it.
