Victim Data Corrupted d0igx

The following is a variation of a previous scam. The structure remains the same, however, the scammer claims they have material (footage) of the victim in some embarrassing manner. Unless the victim sends over a sum of money to the scammer, the video of the victim will be sent to their relatives and other contacts. In the hopes that the victim is too embarrassed, the scammer hopes that the victim will 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.

Virginia Commonwealth University, Scam ( 5-8-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is pretending to be university sending a message to victims. The email states that there is a message waiting for the victim. In order to view the message the victim must open the link in the email.

Some signs that this is a scam are fact that the email was sent from a non-vcu service account. The link is also leading to a strange site. Please delete this email if you have received it.
