Doc Sign, Scam (5-29-18)

The following scam tricks the victims into clicking a link. Once clicked the scammer will either push malware to the victim’s machine or request a username/password which will be stolen.

This particular scam is harder to spot because it was sent from a compromised account. Since the scammers where using an email that they had already compromised, you cannot look at the email and determine straight away that it is a scam. The email message is sent from a personal account not a service one which is a sign that this is a scam. Some other signs that point to scam are the poor grammar, the urgency of the email. The broken formatting in the email is also a give away that this is not an official email. The Email signature (Powered by) is also broken which is another sign that this email is a scam.

STUDENT TEMPORARY EMPLOYMENT , Scam (5-29-18)

The following is a job offer scam. This one follows the same format as before with a body that says view the message attached. The attachment has an offer for a job, it does require that the victim email the scammer back at an alternative address.

To spot a scam like this, think is it too good to be true? Do you know the person offering the job? No one will offer a job without an interview. The various grammar issues are dead giveaways that this is a scam. Notice that none of the emails that the scammer is using are business emails. All of these are signs of a scam.

Am Dr Michael Greger and I work as a clinical counselor for the department of Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES). I provide individual and group therapy, coaching, assessment and academic screenings to support students with disabilities (physical, chronic, psychiatric, and invisible)registered with DRES. A large percentage of the students served by the mental health unit have psychiatric disabilities or co-morbid psychiatric disabilities and need mental health support to be successful at the university. In addition, many University of students with academic difficulties and no prior diagnosis are seen and assessed through the academic screening and assessment process. I also am the director of supervision, training and coordination of counseling psychology and clinical psychology graduate students of the United States who have practicums at DRES and APA-accredited school psychology pre-doctoral interns.
You have received this email because you have an offer from the University Office for Students with Disabilities to work with me while we help with disabilities frustrated with ignorance and lack of services but as my temporary personal assistant.
