Phishing Scams and Schemes Unveiled

The following is a scam in which the scammer is impersonating a VCU employee. The scammer is hoping to convince the victim that they need to view their W2 form, which can be viewed from the link.

The link is not legitimate and this is a scam. You can tell it is a scam because the email is not a VCU email. You can also check the link (by hovering your mouse over it) to see that it is not leading to a VCU website. All of these are signs of a scam, if you see this email please delete it.
