Floral Request, Scam (12-5-18)

The following is a scam email in which the scammer is claiming to have a package for the victim. In this case, the package is a flower delivery.

You can tell this is a scam based off the email, it is not from a flower company and uses the name IT Admin. The email is also very vague and has a link in it. If you receive an email like this please report and delete it.

Good Morning,

I work in ‘Friendly Floral’, next to the BB&T Bank and we recieved a request, that we think, is for you. Unfortunately for us, the voicemail that left the delivery was not very clear. We called the front desk and they gave us your email. The closest name and address matches you, so I thought i would email you first to see if you recognize the name and address of the sender.
