CHANGES, scam (5-14-18)

The following is scam in which the scammer is impersonating a service account for O365 and has an issue that requires the user’s attention to resolve. In this particular scam the issue is a service swap in which the user needs to sign into their account to delay a service swap. The link is a phishing link, once clicked it will show a cloned login page. If the user was to put in their credentials the scammer would have their user information.

Some signs that this is a scam are the urgent issues that require the user’s attention. The email address is not a service account (the username for the account is a service name but the actually email account is a not). The generic signature (Service provider) is another sign of a scam email. The email link, if hovered over, leads to a different site that is not a VCU operated site.

If you have received this email please delete it.
