Low Storage Space – Email Notification, scam (4-5-2018)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is pretending to be a email solution that the victim is using and has run out of space. It will require the user to click on a link in order to fix their email storage settings.

Notice that the email is not from a service account, does not mention which service it represents. And the misspellings in the email. All of these are signs of a scam.

If you have received this email please delete it.
