Require Important Cuda Succour, Scam (6-11-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer has a malicious attachment inside the email. In this case, the scammer is posing as someone who needs some help, in this particular scam, the help is with Cuda programming language.

Some signs that this is a scam are the poor grammar and the lack of detail (why are they reaching out/how did they receive the victim’s email?). The Urgent in the subject line also is also used to ignite the victim into responding.

If you have received this email or one like it please delete the email.
