Victim Unsuspected News 7Bv8Le, Scam (5-9-18)

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.

Reliable Worker Needed, Scam (5-9-18)

The following is a job offer scam. This scam will have the victim send their resume over to the scammer to be offered a job and asked to cash checks to send money over to vendors. These checks will bounce and the victim will be out however much they sent the scammers. This is very similar to the previous job offer scams.

Some signs that this is a scam are that the victim did not reach out first, the email that the scam is being sent from has a different name than the email. The email is not a business email and the email signature does not state which company they represent. Note that if someone was to offer a job they would use their business email and request an interview.

If you have received this email please delete it.

Victim Watch it! ID zJFU055, Scam (5-7-18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is attempting to blackmail the victim. The scammer claims that the user went on a adult website and downloaded the scammer’s malware. The malware, the scammer claims, captured the user in some private moments. The scammer will send the video to all of the victim’s relatives unless the victim sends over $358 in bitcoin over to the scammer’s wallet.

This scam depends on the victim being afraid that they will be shamed by their relatives/ people viewing the video. Out of fear of embarrassment the victim will sometimes 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.

financial obligation!!! – Scam (5/3/18)

The following is a scam in which the scammer is posting as a VCU employee and using it to ask about sensitive information from other employees (in this case bank account balance). The scammer will then ask for a wire transfer to a vendor, who actually is the scammer.

Some signs that this is a scam are the fact that the scammer used an email address that is not the impersonated employee’s work account. If your co-worker has a work related question they will email you from their work email. If you examine the body of the email, you will notice small grammatical errors that are also signs that the email is a scam.

If you have received this email please delete it.
