Hi Victim, Scam (8-2-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is posing as the director of a department asking a favor from their employees. The scammers are using the director’s first and last name to impersonate the director.

You can tell this is a scam because the Email is not sent from a VCU email, it is being sent from a gmail account. In an attempt, to appear more legitimate the scammer addresses the victim by their name. Don’t be fooled the address used is not from VCU and is asking for suspicious things. All of these are signs of a scam. If you have received an email similar to this please delete it.
