Victim Watch it! ID zJFU055, Scam (5-7-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is attempting to blackmail the victim. The scammer claims that the user went on a adult website and downloaded the scammer’s malware. The malware, the scammer claims, captured the user in some private moments. The scammer will send the video to all of the victim’s relatives unless the victim sends over $358 in bitcoin over to the scammer’s wallet.

This scam depends on the victim being afraid that they will be shamed by their relatives/ people viewing the video. Out of fear of embarrassment the victim will sometimes send over the money. This is a scam, the scammer does not have a video of the victim and even if they did, they would not delete it because the victim sent over some money. The scammer will continue to harass the victim for money until the victim gives up. The best course of action if you receive an email like this is to delete it and ignore the email.

financial obligation!!! – Scam (5/3/18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is posting as a VCU employee and using it to ask about sensitive information from other employees (in this case bank account balance). The scammer will then ask for a wire transfer to a vendor, who actually is the scammer.

Some signs that this is a scam are the fact that the scammer used an email address that is not the impersonated employee’s work account. If your co-worker has a work related question they will email you from their work email. If you examine the body of the email, you will notice small grammatical errors that are also signs that the email is a scam.

If you have received this email please delete it.

NA Career Service and NA TLT Hiring approval form, Scam (4-25-18)

The following is a job offer scam in which the scammer is posing as an employer who is looking to hiring students. This scam will have the victim send their resume over to the scammer to be offered a job and asked to cash checks to send money over to vendors. These checks will bounce and the victim will be out however much they sent the scammers. This is very similar to the previous job offer scams.

Some signs that this is a scam are that the victim did not reach out first, the email that the scam is being sent from is not the same email where the scammer is requesting the resume be sent to. Both emails are not business emails and the email signature does not state which company they represent. Note that if someone was to offer a job they would use their business email.

If you have received this email please delete it.

The following is a scam where the scammer poses as a package delivery representative. The scam involves alerting the victim that a package meant for them is delayed. In order to see the updated information on their package the victim needs to click a link.

Some signs that this is a scam are the fact that; the user is not expecting a package, the scammer is emailing from a non-business email, and the name on the email is not the same as the email signature. The email signature claims to be from an automated system yet uses a personal account instead of a service account. All of these are signs that this is a scam.
