Transfer scam (8/28/17)

The following Phishing attempt tries to trick an employee into responding to the scammer to setup a fund transfer. Notice the email is from an unknown email address. This is a tell tale sign of an initial hook in these types of scams. If you receive suspicious messages like this, then it is always good to verify with the actual person over the phone before proceeding.

I would have texted you or called you about this but it is very urgent and so frustrating that i couldn’t get it done myself. Wanted to know if you can help me send to money through Western Union or Money Gram . I tried having $1500 sent to someone but it kept giving me some kind of error online. Was hoping you could help in sending it on my behalf, I’ll have the money back to you . Until i hear from you ..

Thanks.
