Google Docs, Scam (1/10/19)

The following is an email scam in which the scammer is posing as someone the victim knows and has some documents for the victim to view. If clicked upon, the link contains a phishing site which will be used to steal the victim’s credentials. You can tell this is a scam because, the scammer is an unknown – Do not click links from unknown email addresses. The link in the email is an IP address (not hidden) and is clearly not redirecting to a Google Document.

If you have received this email please delete it.
