Hi Scam (5/22/17)

This and similar styled emails have been hitting VCU more and more recently. In this email we see an unsolicited email with a generic “observation” that has been uploaded to Dropbox. The link itself was posted in full and doesn’t even go to Dropbox. Not only is this a poor phishing attempt, but it is extremely easy to avoid. Delete it and do not forward it if you receive it.

I have uploaded an important observation using Drop Box. Please Copy the below link to open Document You’ll be prompted to login. I would be contacting you for further review later in the day.
