Please Sign ASAP!, Scam (11-2-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is attempting to trick the victim into clicking a link. Upon clicking the link, the scammer will be able to steal credentials and other PII from the victim.

This scam can be spotted because of the email address used, the name of the email signature seems random. A different name is used in the email as well as who the document is from. Another way to spot this scam is the vague body, it just states there is a document waiting – no indication of what service (Dropbox, Google Drive, Apple Cloud, etc.). If you hover your mouse over the link you can also see the link is leading to somewhere else.

If you have received this message please ignore and delete it.
