W2 Paperless, Scam (5-30-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating VCU Human Resources. The scam involves a link that requires login to view your W2 form. The link is a phishing link, the site is not legitimate and the scammer will steal credentials from the site login.

Some signs that this is a scam are the email address used is not a VCU email nor a service account (HR). Hovering over the link you can see that the site linked is not Eservices. If you want to check your W-2 please go directly to VCU self-service.

If you have received this email please delete it.
