Urgent : – Important Notice Immediate Action Required, SCAM 8-3-18

The following is a scam in which the scammer is posing as VCU Medical Center and asking victims to click on a link to view an important message. The link has a phishing site with VCU’s login cloned on it. Any information entered on this site will be sent to the scammer and they will steal your login information.

Signs that this is a scam are the non VCU address, the scammer was able to use another compromised .EDU address but it is not a vcu one. Another sign this is a scam is the link, if hovered over, does not lead to VCU but to another site.

If you have received this email please delete it.
